Lovely room with a view! Posted Aug 30, 2012
I am not a sophisticated worldly traveler. I'm just a simple person who was looking for a nice, quiet room for a personal weekend retreat, and this hotel did not disappoint. My room was a good size with two (count 'em TWO!) comfortable chairs. The balcony with a view was nice. This may sound silly, but when the housekeeper left the room after cleaning - the room seemed happy instead of cold and sterile. The morning shower was a dual between hot water and tepid water - but I can understand that. I can't imagine how a hotel keeps everyone in hot water in the mornings. The bed looked fluffy and soft with the linens and duvet - but the mattress was very firm. I was hoping for something as soft as it looked. The desk set up was brilliant! It was a two piece desk, the upper portion was stationary, the lower section was on wheels and a perfect height for my laptop. I was able to move the lower section around the room as I needed. Internet was fast enough for my needs. TV was disappointing - not many channels unless you like sports. Breakfast was adequate, but get there early if you would like a choice. My egg scramble was barely warm and the cheese inside wasn't melted. There was only one yogurt left. The mini blueberry muffins were soft and tasty. In the evening they bake cookies for guests. It smelled wonderful. Front desk personnel were professional. I definitely plan to use this hotel again.
