This is a new boutique hotel in a good location, but still working out the bugs. The AC didn't work the first night and the first morning, I had just soaped up and the water went cold; so my initial reaction was not favorable. Reported the issues to the desk as I left in the morning and when I came back that evening asked if everything had been resolved and told it had been. Went up to the room and the AC was still not working. They ended up moving me to suite, so the rest of my time there was nice.
Now little things that drive me crazy, the decision to have showers and no tubs is not for everyone. If they are going to do this a bench would be nice. After walking all day, I really wanted to take a nice relaxing bath, but that wasn't an option. At least sitting down on a bench in the shower would have helped. And forget trying to shave your legs in a shower like that :-)
Also, initially got put in a handicap room. The shower doesn't have a shower curtain and there is no bathroom counter space. Have no idea why they would put someone in a handicap room when they had other rooms available.
