Just came back from a week's stay at Hotel Cheval. This is a small boutique hotel. Very charming. The way the rooms are built around the courtyard makes it feel as though you were in a small European town. In the courtyard are planters of small trees and flowers as well as plenty of little alcoves to sit in. There are two fireplaces with chairs around them. The fires are always lit in the evenings. A nice place to have a glass of wine or an after dinner drink.
Our room "Feathers" was nicely located just above one of the fireplaces with our windows , on two sides, facing the courtyard. The room was not big but not tight either.
The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. The bathroom was a good size, with a shower for two and lots of space on the counter around the sink. Good toiletries .
There were two bathrobes to use as well as good quality towels in abundance. Also in the room there was an armoire, large enough to unpack all of your things. There was also a window seat with a small table. There was a coffee maker, wine glasses, ice bucket and everyday they left 2 bottles of water. The only thing I found the room was missing was a small refrigerator.
Breakfast on the weekends (Saturday & Sunday) was served in the Pony Room. It was buffet style and had something warm, either quiches, scrambled eggs and bacon, quesadilla's, etc. There was also fresh fruit, pastries, cereal and yogurt. Also bread to toast. Coffee and orange juice. It was very good and substantial. During the week they delivered to your door a bowl of fruit and either a muffin or pastry. I found this breakfast a little chintzy for the money you pay . For me that would be the only weak point for this hotel. They could use the Pony Room everyday and it would be a lot more comfortable for people to sit and have breakfast. The Pony Room was a bar in the late afternoon into the evening with entertainment.
There was ample parking, either on the hotel property or on the street. We slept with the window open and were woken up one evening by noise from the street cleaners. Otherwise the hotel was not noisy and everything shuts down at 10 pm. They lock the doors and you have to use a key to get in if you happen to be out later than that.
The staff were accommodating and helpful with requests for information or directions.
In all , it was a very pleasant stay and would recommend this charming little hotel to anyone and would certainly revisit it myself.
