*An older building that has maintained the character and charm with wood floors, brick walls, high ceilings, gorgeous drapes, large crown molding, and antique furniture.
*Excellent customer service. Staff is friendly and helpful.
*Complimentary cold bottled water from the front desk.
*Complimentary wine and cheese for two hours each evening in the bar area. There were light hors d'oeuvres each night that we attended.
*Free hot breakfast consisted of eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage or ham (different days), biscuits, gravy, pancakes, breads, bagels, yogurt, 3 cereals, fresh whole fruit, coffee, and juice. This is served in the basement, which has great character with painted brick floors, exposed beams and floor joists, and a charming staircase (also elevator accessible).
*Excellent location on Bay Street. Within walking distance of all shops and restaurants downtown and on River Street.
*Our room had a large love seat (large enough for a child to sleep) and two wing back chairs.
*Flat screen TV.
*Hot shower with curved shower curtain rod.
*Thicker towels than typical hotels.
*Turn down service with mints.
*Parking garage close by.
*Knowledgeable bellman who took our luggage to our room. He shared info about the building, which was originally a cotton warehouse.
*Creaky floors. Actually a plus for me, because it added to the charm, but for light sleepers, this might be annoying, as you can not only hear people in your room, but also others when A/C unit is not running and all else is quiet.
*Street noise. We were two rooms back from Bay Street and could hear the continuous traffic. It might not be as bad further back into the hotel.
*Doors need slow closures. Very heavy doors that slam if not closed purposefully gently.
*Elevator noise. Our room was next to the elevator, and we could hear it, but it wasn't obnoxious.
*Because of the shape of our room, the armoire which housed the TV, was set back in the living area, which wasn't great for viewing from both beds, although it did pull out and swivel, which was helpful.
*Small bathroom due to older building.
*Limited outlets due to older building, although there was one with four receptacles in the middle of the room. Just not any near a mirror other than the bathroom.
