We stayed in the Jerry Garcia suite for two nights. We are in our 50s, and used to be Dead fans; my husband played in a band that played all Dead stuff when we were young, so this was kind of cool for us. The staff was very pelasant, always around, and helpful. The room was a large hotel room, by normal standards. The decor was Garcia-ish, with fabrics like his ties, and his paintings all over the walls. One wall bore his original signature, with a photo of him sitting in the room above it. There was a large couch, but no "cocktail" table, or end table. The TV swiveled to face either the couch or the bed. The bed was comfortable. There was a small desk and chair as well, and a countertop with coffeemaker and mugs. The shower was kind of sprinkly--showers are so important, and so overlooked--I couldn't wait to shower at home after our stay, with a good strong spray. As a member of JDV (you shoudl join!), we got free internet. We did pay for parking.
We often stay in chains. Maybe I should say used to stay in chains. Of course, we traveled without kids this time, and I think chains can be good when you need connecting rooms. This was a funky cool hotel, and we liked it very much. It wasn't cheap to stay in the suite, and I don't htink I would like a room that is 110 sq ft, but we really liked our stay here.
