I had happened to get this hotel on Hotwire. I never have used the site, but I am really glad I did.
We arrived at the hotel around 4:30pm. The valet took our keys and we went to check in. We were greeted and helped right away. The lobby was nice and staff was friendly.
They advised us that we came at the right time since they are doing some renovations to the hotel.
After going up to our room, there were men working in the hallway quiet loudly. I could hear their saws and hammers. I really just wanted to take a nap after a long boarder line up. There were empty wine glasses on the floor; I thought that was really odd. We turned the corner and our room was tucked in a little hallway. The hallway to the stairs was unfinished and opened. This being my first impression, I was nervous to open the door to our room. When we did, the room was very nice. It was really clean and up to par with cool technology features. (I could plug in my iPod, charge my iPhone, blackberry and GPS) The bed could have used more blankets. But we turned our heat up to accommodate that. :) The room also did smell like fresh paint, but we got use to it.
The noise outside stopped around 5:15 and we went downstairs to have a glass of wine.
Oh ya, they have happy hour, for free :)
We had some wine and were shown a magic trick or two. It was a very nice extra little touch.
We walked around the hotel and checked out the other amenities. (The work out room is small but had most of the equipment we were looking for)
Then we had a night on the town.
We came back from eating and sightseeing to get a little cozy in our room. The showers are very nice and the products they use are not those nasty shampoos that leave your hair dry and only enough for one person to take a shower. They had ample amount!
We checked out around 9... Their check out is 12! This is really nice if you just want to lounge.
We would stay here again... :)
