We liked a lot of the amenities like coffee/water bar.
The blue paint needs to be done throughout the hotel. That was a little disappointing.
I liked the size of my King Suite with Jetted Tub; I liked the uniqueness of the hotel and its location.
There is no desk in the hotel room, unless they wanted us to put a laptop on the flip down out of what was being used as the "bar" (ice bucket and glasses). With no actual desk chair at the appropriate height available, we assumed they did not want anyone sitting at that and using it as a desk. Also, there was no coffee or tea available after 11:30 am unless you purchased it either in the bar/restaurant or through room service. For such a pricey room, I'd have liked a way to make my tea.
Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff.
I loved their set up for coffee and tea in the morning. It was simple however very convenient to have it on each floor.
Short but sweet stay
The staff was great- the valet attendants were very professional (and the parking was actually cheaper than the city parking garages) and the front desk staff were very helpful. They even had a complimentary car service! You also can't beat the location of the hotel- a minute walk and you're surrounded by beautiful shops and restaurants!
Our room was near the elevator and the pantry- due to the proximity of those two things, it was pretty loud throughout the night. There was a sign next to the pantry encouraging people to be quiet but I'm not sure that advice was taken. While the wooden floors were beautiful, I don't think they did a lot to muffle noise when people walked to their rooms in the middle of the night.
