What a beautiful hotel. We all wished we stayed longer. The rooms are appointed with simple, contemporary decor - so refreshing from the typical hotel in this price point trying to be so grand and all that... So much more sophisticated. Even the window treatments rocked. The beds were glorious. ipod with a zillions tunes in the room. The soaps and shampoos were fun - peppermint and other aromas - not the nasty perfumy stuff elsewhere.
I ordered cookies and milk for a treat for the kids, and it was delivered exactly on time. A bit pricey, though, but fun to do once.
The gallery was also fun to check out. A great range of work to see.
Unfortunately, we didn't check out the restaurant or bar because we had a previously booked event, but did pop in to check out the vibe - definitely will be trying it next time.
The neighborhood also looks like it has a lot to offer, though we didn't have time to check it out this time.
The staff were friendly and helpful. They actually looked me in the eye and spoke to me during check-in - not just the robotic, almost wordless processing I've experienced elsewhere. Good recommendations, too. (Lynne's Paradise Cafe - not sure which is better - looking at the decor or the food!)
We loved it so much, we are planning to come back in the spring. I typically do not like to repeat experiences, and would normally try a new place, but not this time...
