The one thing that really compelled me to write a review for this hotel is their gym. This gym is described as accessible 24 hrs and next to the front desk - not a good sign in my book. I was fully expecting to find your typical converted office with a broken down universal machine and a sub par bike or treadmill.
What I found was a gym with its own elevator access which was by hotel standards - huge, clean and fully appointed with multiple PRECOR treadmills and ellipticals, a robust line of CYBEX machines, free weights, tvs, a lounge and bathroom with shower, as well as stocked with water and fruit.
This gym alone would make me stay here again!
I admit, the rooms are a little tired in this hotel and my room faced the back above the equipment which was noisy at times. But, the bed was very comfortable and room/sheets/towels clean.
The lobby was nicely old world appointed and I saw many guests lounging and enjoying cocktails and coffee in the plentiful and comfortable seats.
When I arrived, the valet presented me with 2 options for parking. $27 valet, no charge in and out, or $14 self park with the comment that 'most people opt for the $27 valet'.
