The hotel is wonderfully designed, a Liz Lambert gem. It looks a bit shoddy compared to the pictures on the web, though the smart use of space is apparent. The beds were comfortable and the I enjoyed the peacefulness of the rooms....UNTIL the train came through! It woke me up every time, and I struggled to get back to sleep at least three times during the night (and I am a heavy sleeper). The experience was also tainted by two obnoxious front desk clerks. The young man was simply aloof and the older woman was a bit condescending. How easily people forget the paying guest/hospitality staff dynamic! For the price--and the location--I would have expected less atittude and better customer service. They seemed bothered with my questions, so I will likely not bother with the hotel next time. All in all, a beautiful place that might be too cool for school.
