Reviewed February 10, 2010

We stayed the a day after the hotel received it's final Certificate of Occupancy. Friendly greetings abound from door to front desk. The staff was professional and well-trained. You would have never known we were some of the first guests to stay in the newly renovated boutique hotel. Only the top two floors (7 & 8) were ready for guests but the lounge, cafe and restaurants were open at the lobby level.

Our room was a "Double Deuce", a larger room than the "40 Winks" and with two view windows compared to one. We exited the elevator on the 8th floor and were greeted with the custom black and white wall paper slyly referencing the things Bakersfield is known for; oil derricks and country music. We entered our room into a quiet that was welcome after the 2 hour drive from LA. Soothing colors of midnight blue and a pale mustard yellow were used minimally within the predominantly black, white and gray pallete. The room was furnished with an over-sized, very comfortable arm chair and ottoman, flat screen TV, armoire closet, desk with a faux hand-tooled leather desk chair. The bed was named the "Marshmallow" as it was the heavenly combination of a Tempur-Pedic mattress topped with a down mattress topper, white duvet-covered down comforter and fluffy down pillows. (Comparable down-alternative bedding is available for those who are allergic to down) It was the best nights sleep I think I have ever had. The spacious black-tiled bathroom was elegantly lit with modern pendant lights and recessed lighting. A huge shower with a rainfall shower head and built in seat was hard to leave. The white fluffy theme of the bed was echoed in the plush bath towels.

We did not eat at the hotel as we had other plans. We regret not having breakfast at Farmacy Cafe. We walked the 7 blocks to 24th Street Cafe and had almost an hour wait to be seated. Our meal was slow to arrive and it was mediocre compared to what we saw being served at Farmacy.

The location of the hotel is in the up and coming old downtown Bakersfield. 2 art deco theaters, art galleries and restaurants are interspersed with antique malls and clothing boutiques. In between these businesses are buildings under renovation. The hotel owners are ahead of the curve of what will be a destination downtown. We can't wait to return for another stay and over time, watch the improvements multiply in the downtown area.
