The description on the web site is: "Enjoy our cozy 205 sq ft king bedded room w plush triple sheeted bed as you watch movies on a flat screen tv. Stay productive w ample desk space and free wireless internet our slightly larger bathrooms compensate for the quaint gstrm w a boutique feel for a luxurious yet practical stay."
The room had just been remodeled so it does look very nice. and the bedding and furniture seem to be very good quality. The main lobby and restaurant/bar are in temporary quarters as they are remodeling there as well so things are pretty spartan. The staff is pleasant and very helpful.
The exposed sliding door to the bathroom is substantial but makes the room seem a bit industrial. The bathroom is nicely laid out with a very nice walk-in shower but it takes 5 minutes to get water warm enough to start showering and another 5 to get it hot to the point you have to think about turning it down. The other bathroom complaint is that the sink does not have a drain stopper. Maybe I am old fashioned but I like to shave with the sink bowl filled with hot water. When I can't do this at least I hope for good water flow to rinse the razor but that was not the case as the water flows out in water saving multiple streams. Not even enough flow to clean stuff out of the bottom of the sink. The new toilet has a two choice flush panel with small fushes for liquid and larger for the other type. Suppose this is a water savings idea but when it doesn't shut off there is no handle to jiggle.
So cozy means small but at least you would hope it would be efficient. It is small but it isn't effiecient. The "ample"desk space is puny. They have put in a small area on the small desk top where there are two outlets and some USB charging ports under a flip up cover. Unfortunately the TV and the Desk Lamp are plugged into the outlets so you have to choose which one is going to work if you want to plug in your computer. The two outlets under the desk are used up too. That leave access to two outlets in the lamps either side of the bed but you would need an extension cord to still work at the desk. The desk also is home to the Telephone which I unplugged and set behind the TV (the wall cord is tied up so you can't move it off the desk without unplugging it. Then there is the desk lamp which is huge for the desk size. Seems like a wall mounted lamp like next to the bed would have been a better choice and would have provided two more outlets. Luckily the desk chair had enough height adjustment so you can find a good working position. No arms on the chair as it has to be shoved in if you want to get past it to the TV, free standing Closet or windows.
The TV worked fine and the refrigerator kept things cold so no complaints there. Lighting next to the bed was CFL but with the ability to turn on one or two lamps in each fixture the lighting was very good.
