Imagine a hip, trendy boutique hotel in New York City. Now imagine a small, sleepy, plain-folks town in the rural south. Then plunk the swanky hotel down in the southern town, and you begin to get the picture. Stepping into the lobby is a surreal experience. But I loved it! The room was swanky, with super-comfortable bed, a chaise-like chair with ottoman, and a roomy bathroom with a great shower. (The town has very soft water too.) I was in town at the company's expense, so I don't know how much the room was. Some of my colleagues said their room had a tub in addition to the shower. No view to speak of--my window faced the building next door, but I didn't care--it was like a luxurious retreat. I came home each evening to find the bed turned-down. All staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet in the morning has a very good variety of real food, actually cooked by real people (but I don't know how much that cost either). There's a fancy restaurant attached to the hotel, which I will review separately. There's a 4th floor terrace and a courtyard for sitting, a good (but not great) workout room, meeting rooms, and computer available for checking email (no charge). I did not want to leave this hotel--it was almost too nice for me!
