...impressive at first glance, but the more you get to know them, the more disappointed you get. This room looks really great when you walk in. But so many things are just stupid.
Where to start? The luggage rack is in the bathroom, exactly two feet in front of the toilet (yuck!) and right next to the tub. The tub is super deep, so there's a grab bar for elderly people to use- but they couldn't get to it because the luggage rack is right in the way. The closet, also in the bathroom, is awkwardly placed- when you open the bathroom door, it totally blocks the closet door. The rod is placed at half height. A dress or a tall person's trousers would drag on the floor and be wrinkled.
The room is very small (there really wasn't room for the luggage rack in the room, so that's why they put it next to the toilet). It only has a full size bed. What hotel doesn't at least have a queen size bed? My 6'3" husband had to sleep diagonally so that his feet wouldn't hang off the end. But since it's only 15 inches wider than a twin bed, that left very little space for me. I just checked- the web-site says queen, but it wasn't.
They have an attractive little kitchenette with beautiful granite counter-tops. But wait, what good are dishes, sink and dorm sized fridge, if there's no microwave to warm up food in? They have a Keurig coffeemaker. I was looking forward to a good cup of coffee in the morning. But the coffee pods were unsealed little filter pouches- exposed to the air, cleaning sprays used by housekeeping, people's hands, coughs, etc. Maybe these would be okay for home use, but only if they were kept in an airtight container so they wouldn't be stale. Even if they were in some sort of container here, I wouldn't use them because they would be exposed to all kinds of germs, etc. Unbelievable that they would try to cut corners like this!
It's not soundproof at all. We could hear the conversation of the people in the adjoining room. They weren't being loud.
There is one tiny window in the corner, but it doesn't let in much natural light at all. It felt exactly how it feels to be sleeping in a below-grade basement. That's because it opened onto a very small "courtyard" (maybe 15' x 15'), that is several stories high. So the "view" was of walls, another room directly across, and gravel on the second story "landing" just outside the window. I'm surprised that it could pass fire code. Where would you go if the door was blocked? If you moved the floor lamp and went out the window, you would be stuck in the tiny courtyard with no way to get out.
Clearly there are several grades of rooms in this hotel. "Deluxe" room is a misnomer for ours.
