Hi all -- I've been on the hunt (much like Nurse) for a hotel room for myself and 16 y.o. son for our upcoming 10 night/11 day June/July 2006 trip.
Year before last, we stayed at the Rubens which had to be the smallest hotel room I've ever seen. When sitting on the side of the bed, my son's knees almost hit the wall - at least there was no hope of misplacing anything in the room. This trip, he's taller and while it would be a hoot to stay in the same room and see if his knees WOULD hit the wall, I'd rather change.
Soooo, I've been going back & forth between "Pricelining" the hotel, staying at Travel Inn County Hall or Astons Apartments. I think I've chosen Astons even though it will be several hundred USD more than the other options based on location, kitchenette and responses from the Manager. I'm thinking we may be able to get away with breakfast everyday and possibly a lunch/dinner several times during the week which may "make up the difference." The Astons seems to have gotten many favorable reviews over the past years, but my concern is that EVERYONE says how small the rooms are. Will this be Rubens revisited?
Think this is long winded - wait till my trip report!!
As always - thanks for your help and time.
