The service at the hotel was outstanding, by and large. I chose the hotel due to its proximity to my client's office. However, I was very disappointed to discover that the walls in the place are paper thin. I awoke multiple times throughout the night to what I thought was the sound of people in my room. You can hear everything - and I mean everything - in the neighboring rooms and the hallways.
This hotel was a delightful discovery!
The rooms are large with a sofa seating area, a desk, a kitchen. Well laid out. I will say there is some fan noise from the bathroom but the bed is so far away you don’t really hear it.
We like to stay in hotels with hot tubs and this tub was spotless. They also don’t use chlorine which was a nice surprise.
The blackout shade in the bed area actually blocks the outdoor light. There is plenty of counter space for luggage.
Last night hotel in another city was really dreary so I am doubly thrilled to be somewhere nice with a moderate price.
I am writing this during my stay so I have not had breakfast yet but everything else has been better than expected so I have high hopes for that too.
