Included breakfast is mostly continental, plus a waffle iron and a microwaveable sandwich, nothing much on the low carb front.
“Full size” microwave and fridge, oversized sink, seem like overkills for such smallish units, more a test of the compact utilitarian European hotel room design.
Bathrooms are shower stall only, with smallish sliding door that, although new, seemed somewhat cheap and rickety. Amenities are limited, small soap bar and lotion. Shampoo and body wash (no conditioner) are dispensed from permanently mounted dispensers in the shower. I realize that the showers in any hotel room are used by countless prior guests, but the YMCA style mounted dispensers just seem to unnecessarily remind a guest of that fact.
The bed was comfortable but the pillows are unusable, what I refer to as “sofa cushion” pillows, so firm and large that using them means sleeping with your head cocked upward toward the ceiling all night.
In short, I would trade the oversized kitchen equipment for an upgraded bathroom experience and comfortable pillows.
Very friendly staff remembered my name, hours later.
Parking is unassociated, and not discounted for hotel guests. $40 per day with in and out privileges.
Location is a huge value add.
This is a fine hotel, it’s a compact well equipped mid tier price range hotel, with the added benefit of being brand new, my critique here is meant to explain why it didn’t receive a 5 out of 5.
