Gorgeous & Clean But Could Use Some Tweaks
Posted Jan 7, 2017
The hotel is beautiful, stunning old early deco 1920s -- we felt like we should be wearing beaded chiffon gowns! Staff is super nice and helpful (but why were they dressed in sweats?). The room was spotlessly clean and HUGE. We asked for a standard room but had a living room and full kitchen with enormous bathroom. Fabulous! BUT the bed had no reading lamps or bedside tables -- where to put my phone, book, glasses, glass of water? We moved in some lamps from the living room so we could read in bed but that wasn't optimal! Lighting in the living room was harsh or too low, nothing in between. And the leather couch and chairs could use some cushions to soften them. But mostly, the whole place needed more surfaces to put things! A coffee table or more end tables to put things on in the living room. A desk or place to put the laptop. A place to put down STUFF in the bedroom. A table and chairs for the kitchen -- you have a full kitchen (5 burners on the stove!) but then only 2 stools to sit down to eat. You could combine a desk/table, since there's plenty of room. Our friends with a room down the hall had the same issues. Just suggest that management spend a couple of days in the rooms with all the stuff of daily living and see what's needed for a bit more comfort. So CLOSE to fabulous!
