We stayed at this hotel for our daughter's graduation weekend. What a pleasure! Our room was a "king study" The bed was very comfortable with 740 count sheets, 6 pillows and down comforter. There is a pillow menu available to choose other pillows if you so desire. Our room had a king size sleeper sofa also. There was a 32" LG flat screen tv with a jillion channels (a lot of them weren't even listed on the cheat sheet). A-Bus sound sound system is in the room as well a place to plug in an IPod. The bathroom is done in marble,granite and tile. No tub, but a really nice shower, whose door leaked onto the floor. The mirror over the sink never fogged up no matter how hot or long the shower was. Gilchrist & Soames personal care products are supplied. The coffee was really good; Fonte coffee with a miniature DeLonghi stainless carafe. Turn down service is provided with hand made chocolates. The room service breakfast menu prices are very reasonable, but can't attest to the quality since we went to Panera's which is 1/2 block away. Parking is very convenient and included with the room. The staff were all very well trained and helpful. Overall a wonderful experience.
