I love the Strater. My only complaint this time was the thermostat did not work. My room was 77 all night. Also I know they try to keep the rooms authentic. Pre Covid they had coffee available on each level. This time you had to have someone from the front desk give you coffee. They should put a coffee maker in the room until this calms down. Still a great place to stay though. I stay 1-2 times per year. I will be back.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! We are happy to hear that you will be back! We are always trying our best to help accommodate our guests as best as possible even with COVID restrictions in place. Unfortunately, we do not have enough coffee makers to place in every room at this time and are working with an increasingly shrinking budget. Next time you are here please call the front desk at any time and we would be more than happy to bring some coffees up to your room. The front desk is here 24/7 to help you with any problems you might have. Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!
