The entrance to the hotel was a bit hard to find as it is not on the main street. Valet parking was available for $29. Self park, which was only steps away was $14. Check in was very friendly and efficient. We asked for and received an upgrade for no additional charge. (I had purchased the room from LMT). The room was large, unfortunately the view was that of the parking structure. The bed was comfortable. The linens, window coverings and shower curtains were of beautiful fabrics in greys and yellows. The room had a large desk with 2 chairs, a love seat and coffee table. There was an amoire in place of a closet. The furniture was period. The bathroom was large with 2 sinks and a vanity with drawers - nice for storage. There was also a scale (not sure that is a plus while on vacation!), a magnifying mirror and Gilchrist and Soames toiletries. My only compliant was the shower head was not very good and was not accomodating to tall people. Turn down service was advertised but we never received it. The lobby was decorated for the holidays - and wow they did it right. There were several decorated trees and a huge train display. The hotel is located right in the heart of shopping, dining and bars. The service was outstanding. Would definitely stay here again.
