Potential for Better
Posted Dec 1, 2013
We stayed in the hotel on Thanksgiving night, after visiting friends for dinner. The hotel was rather empty on that night.
It's beautiful inside and out…the rooms have extremely high ceilings made of wood. The walls are covered with what seems to be leather. The furnitures are stylish and the bed was exceptionally soft an comfortable. The bathroom was enormous, with a large mirror (definitely a bonus), and their beauty products were first class.
Breakfast was OK - nice idea - delivered into the room in a "old shoe-shine box". I think I'd rather have an option of hot breakfast.
But the place has potential for more!
We stayed at the ground level (which I think is level 2 since our room number was 2xx). Right below us was some sort of boiler room/ mechanical room, with constant humming… I can sleep through anything, and my husband can't sleep in a total silence, so ultimately we didn't mind, but it was noticeable and… the floor was vibrating from it.
The bathtub and the bathroom itself were not leveled properly. The shower would leak water outside of the tub, and the stream would flow away from the tub, not only throughout the whole bathroom, but also outside of it - requiring significant amount of towels to "tamponade" the flood.
Finally, the hotel was lit up in holiday colors from outside - alternating green and red lights along the windows. The window blinds were not covering the widows entirely, so we had a green glare inside our room all night long.
