Property is in downtown Winston-Salem. I paid extra for a view… leading me to believe that I would see some of the area. It’s a 20 story bldg! Turns out the hotel is only to about the 6th floor, and paying extra for a ‘view’ just means you have an outside room that doesn’t face a roof or AC unit. Wow. No radio in the room but you can pay $10/day for streaming music. Chilly shower with no door or curtain. Otherwise the stay was nice.

The rooms are not worth the outrageous price. The smallest room we have ever had for a hotel of any price. They give you 2 thin sheets for covers. Bed was uncomfortable. Hair in wash rags. No microwave. We have stayed in a lot of higher end hotels and this was by far the worst for the money. Downstairs restaurant was awesome.

Parking was a challenge due to our not being aware of close-by parking structures until after we arrived. It would have been helpful to have advisement given by the hotel regarding local parking and valet parking options. Also, while the Katherine Brasserie restaurant menu was varied and our meals enjoyable, we were offered a number of menu variation options for which we were charged without informing us of the additional charge, including a $3.00 charge for a small plate of bread prior to ordering. Otherwise, excellent service from Tyler, Ny and others at the front as well as from restaurant maitre'D.
