We stayed at the Custom Hotel for 3 nights at the end of Route 66. A contemporary hotel where the staff had clearly been recruited to speak quietly in an extremely positive tone. A little freaky at first but once I had adjusted to them it was really quite nice. The fire pit by the outdoor pool was good as was the bar above the pool, infact I would have liked more time to just hang out in that area.We decided to pay for valet parking as we were at the end of a long journey and it worked a treat. The vehicle was whisked away from the reception area and returned within minutes whenever requested. The buffet breakfast is worth paying for as it's excellent and the contemporary seating arrangements worked well- long tables seating about 20 people. The rooms were large and minimal. My 25 year son loved his "bachelor pad". I got the feeling that they had renovated an older hotels rooms on the cheap and called them boutique. There were some clever touches that were low cost and high impact on the hotels part eg a water dispenser in reception with fresh fruit floating in it and coloured LED lights in the bedroom windows that guests could control.........these attracted passers by attention and made the hotel look striking at night. The only negative was the internet access...impossible.
