We were able to utilized their “romance” package, which including an upgrade to a balcony room, valet parking, breakfast (room service), champagne, late check out (3 pm) and Hershey’s kisses. The hotel is located in a pretty residential area with tons of interesting shops, like the Red Onion, a second hand music and book store. The room was large, we had a comfortable king sized bed, sofa, ottoman, desk, 2 chairs and an HD TV. Bathroom was really tiny but clean. We were on the 3rd floor, so we heard noise from people entering & leaving the restaurant but the hallways & floor above us
were very quiet. My husband is an exterminator and since there has been an outbreak of bed bugs, he checked every surface. I’m happy to report, he didn’t see any bug evidence. The lobby is tiny but everyone was attentive and we always had help when needed. You have to call for your car 10/15 minutes ahead of time I liked the wine served at cocktail hour. Oreo cookies and milk are available in the lobby after 10 pm and was a sweet way to end the night.
A few things that prevent us from giving the hotel an A are:
1 – We ordered room service for breakfast, 2 orders of eggs with bacon, homefries and coffee. That’s all we received, no butter/jelly for toast, no milk/cream for coffee or salt & pepper. We received the “extra “ items within 8 minutes of calling the lobby. Breakfast was included in our package but we were given a bill for $44.00 (FOR BREAKFAST), which was not worth it, extremely overpriced.
2 – We received a bill in the morning that had one price, when we checked out the bill was different. Of course, we were charged for the overpriced breakfast TWICE. Not a big deal once the error was explained but it took 10 minutes and two people to credit the $ back.
3 – The hallway on the 3rd floor has a slight sour smell, like a pipe connected to the bathroom had a leak.
4 - Our car was left in the front of the hotel for about an hour, again not a big deal but since you have to pay over $ 30.00 for parking it should be taken care of fairly quickly.
Overall, we had a relaxing, comfortable stay and we would return but would not order room service. We’ll go back to Five Guys for awesome burgers about a 5-minute walk away.
