We checked in late at 10pm on Dec 9 and were greeted with very warm welcome right from the door to the reception.
Room was nice and clean too. The gentlemen at the door in the late nights and mornings were very friendly and gave very good recommendations on nearby ammenities (some good sandwich bars, freshfood supermart & etc) and clear directions to attractions. They really made our days, especially one of the taller
African Americans doormen (who we will find out his name and send in our compliments later).
Area is very safe too though the walk could be a little far if compared to many other hotels which are nearer to the Lafayette Sq (but then taxi is abt $10 for almost every common attraction). The cookies served at the reception area was a jewel for the kids!
Some minor regrets though ...
1) not enough toilettries (no shower cap nor hair conditional shampoo)
2) all the doormen made one feel at home except for a particular doorman (a spectacled staff, on duty on Dec 11th 515pm). We noticed he is the only one who does not greet nor open the door for us.
Will we be back again? Yes especially if there are special rates. We booked almost 3mths in advance and got pretty good discount (~$200 per nite for a double bed deluxe) I supposed.
