The Roxbury is totally awesome! We had an amazing enjoyable time at the Roxbury. My husband and I travel quite a bit, and we can honestly say the Roxbury was the most unique, fun motel we have ever been to. We stayed in the "Emerald City" room based on the" Wizard of Oz" movie. We are fans of the movie and this room actually brought it to life. It even had a cool "yellow brick road" room, as well as a beautiful green chandelier and gorgeous tile detail.
The room was spacious and above all-it was so so clean. I am a bit of a germaphobe and I had no problem taking a nice bath in the wonderful huge soaking tub with hubby. Normally, I would never take a bath at a hotel (only showers) but the Roxbury was so clean, I felt quite comfortable taking a nice long soak. With respect to the tub-it really is a nice big one. Neither hubby nor I are small people and we both fit in comfortably. And the bed was also huge, comfy and had really great sheets and pillows. Divine for sleeping.
I would also like to mention the fact that the host and owner Greg was so gracious and welcoming as was the rest of the staff. When we ran into Greg at restaurants in the area, he was so sweet about saying hello and asking if we were having a good time. Considering you barely see most managers or owners, we really appreciated and were impressed by this. Greg clearly loves his hotel and cares about his guests.
The thoughtful amenities at the Roxbury also made this a great stay. In the bathroom, there was lotions, a bath cap even moisturizers. And nice ones. There is wine in the fridge that you can buy for only $20 per bottle. And you can go to office where snacks, coffee and cookies are laid out. Plus there is a huge DVD section where you can take out a movie for the evening.
We did not get a chance to try the spa, but we hope to come back one day and do so. it looked great. We would both love to try out different rooms. All of them look like such fun.
It was so nice to find a motel that was unique and where you could actually enjoy the whole motel experience. We felt really good in that room and would loved to have stayed longer.
I totally recommend the Roxbury. It's a breath of fun, cool fresh air.
