Room with a view
Posted Sep 13, 2011
This was a nice resort hotel. The furnishings were an odd but pleasant hybrid of craftsman and lodge: the whole aesthetic was a little too self-consciously artsy in a philistine sort of way. But it was livable.
For half the rooms, the view must have been outstanding. For the other half (where I was), the view was of the parking lot. One must insist upon the better view, or the hotel really should charge less for the lesser view.
Soda machines were located only on the second floor, and they were poorly stocked. The whole region (not just this inn) attempts highfalutin' fare on the menu, but only manages to attain the level of a decent burger.
Lots of self-important guests from the metrop: this alone accounts for the general philistine feel.
Still, a nice place. You pay for it.
