O boy, I love this place. Free secure parking, cozy and stylish common areas,
four blocks' walk to the Ave, ten minutes to downtown, and free wi-fi.
And then there's the room, which is laid out SO well: unlike 90% of other
hotels, with the bathroom door immediately to your left [or right], instead you
pass beyond the closet & TV to the windows and then -- only then -- see your spa
bench and full-length mirror. And then around the corner, the giant vanity, and
the bar fridge, with the bath/toilet in a room beyond. The closet is actually
double-sided, so you can get at your things from either the bed or vanity side.
The design could be a disadvantage for couples getting ready at different times
-- the sound and the light are going to carry to the bed side. But it was just
what I needed.
And I think I had a just-average room: I booked from a discount site, had no
view, and two double beds for one person. But it still felt like a special
retreat. I would stay again in a heartbeat....
