Showing wear around the edges
Posted Feb 9, 2017
The building is a renovated dairy, and the exposed brick, high ceilings, and wooden beams certainly give it character. We enjoyed the in-room gas fireplace, and complimentary in-room breakfasts. Our room was spacious, and in many ways inviting, but there are signs of wear and tear. Our bed's king size mattress was propped up in the middle by a plywood board under the main frame. The desk, armoire, and bedside tables showed nicks and scratches that come with normal use, but left the impression the place is in decline.
The carpet in the connecting hallways was ugly and sad, and left me wondering if it was a vestige of the buildings' former use as a night club. The pattern screamed 80's airport hotel.
4 things stood out as unfortunate:
When we arrived in our room, we noticed a small round black "pebble" on the bedspread, that we chose to believe was a stone, and not a hardened rodent dropping.
Our room was on the second floor, and despite the high ceiling, we were subject to a lot of noise originating from a large exhaust fan on the roof. I suspect if we had used the air-conditioning, the noise would have been masked, but it was February.
The hotel charged a non-negotiable parking fee of $15 per day. While this might make sense in the busy season, we were definitely there in the off-season. There were several near-empty lots adjacent to the hotel, charging only 4 or 5 dollars per day for parking. This seemed a cheap cash grab on the part of a higher-end hotel.
