Return visit for business on Christmas Eve. Was looking forward to a nice evening since my better half joined me. Alas, I was ill with the flu, the weather was dreary, and our room was not as nice as the one I'd had previously (which was on the first floor in the main building).
This room was in the building where Shoemaker's is (couldn't go to the restaurant since it's closed on Sundays). I'd heard these rooms were nicer so again, I was anticipating an upgrade. Didn't happen. The room was smaller, darker, had a really noisy AC system. Bed was so close to the wall it was hard to get in and out from that one side. No fan in the bathroom. Tub and shower separate, but the tub didn't have a stopper in it - instead of repairing/replacing this, there was one of those cheap plastic sink hole covers. yuck.
I slept relatively well mostly from exhaustion but my guy woke up to all four trains going by. Flat screen TV seemed small for the room and there's no HD service. We got our breakfast but there was no brie. Room service came by at 930 am; while we didn't hang a "don't disturb" sign, don't they check to see who has left before bothering to knock prior to check-out? There weren't that many folks staying that night and the front desk is only a few steps away.
I enjoyed my first stay and will likely return. Folks are friendly and the rooms aren't bad....just had higher expectations.
