First off-it's an odd looking hotel. There's a swimming pool with a Hugh dome over it-great to read and relax. There is odd white brick, and then it dawned on me- this was originally a motel-type place that was enclosed and renovated.
Anyway, upon check in I was greeted and acknowledged I was a club level traveller. I was given a ice bright red bag with water, popcorn and a granola bar. Nice...I had a question about the event I was attending and was personally walked over to the area and given a quick tour. It was very nice she took the time.
The room was a king, on the 4 th floor. The decor was nice, you can tell from the bathroom tile it's been renovated. The room contains the basis goodies- iron, laundry service , coffee pot, 1 bottled water. It always creeps me out when the coffe pot and its acruterments are kept in the bathroom---
Anyway, the tub, units grey 1980's style, had a big tub! Love that. But what I really liked was the shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and body cream. TEMPLESPA was the brand-actually much nicer then many hotels I have stayed in.another funky aspect to the hotel-the windows. They are half windows. Picture from the ceiling halfway- that's it. The room is much darker due to the size of the windows.
I decided to work out in there gym. It was the basis I, treadmills, universal stations, etc. the pool had a strange black streaky stuff at the bottom. It looked like dirt-but it's an indoor pool?? Hummm
There's a concierge room on the 4 th floor, offering goodies in the am and pm. Maybe I'll check it out.
Best surprise- they leave what looks like a tri-fold card on your bed...it says "sleep tight" and housed aromatherapy cream, calming mist and soothing balm and body and feet....I loved this
