This place was definitely a unique place to stay. The room was spacious--we had a King bed. There was a nice little closet and comfy chairs to sit in. The bed was quite comfortable. I was not fond of the fact that there was only a shower and no bath; however, the water got good and hot and there was plenty of water pressure.
After our first night there, we ordered room service for breakfast. The pancakes were the best we've ever had! The young lady that brought it to us accidentally spilled one of the drinks on the bed, and offered to tell housekeeping to make sure they changed the sheets.
When we came back from sightseeing that day, no one had been in our room--the used towels were still on the bathroom floor. We called the front desk, and they had housekeeping there within five minutes to clean the room. Another fifteen minutes and they were done. The head of housekeeping even showed up to help, and apologized profusely.
I'm not sure we would stay there again, but it was definitely a different experience!
