So So Stay
Posted 10-Nov-2016 on Hotels
In my honest opinion, I was not impressed by this hotel, at all. When I checked in I asked if I could be upgraded (because I was already being charged a semi hefty price of $190 per night) to one of the nicer rooms (such a suite, or a room not on ground floor like the one she gave me). The front desk person said that the room they had me in was a nice room and did not compromise with me. The room was small and hot, even with AC running. The bed, not comfy. The hotel does not serve food at night or during the day, this was unfortunate when I became hungry for dessert and red wine around 10pm. I inquired about a glass of Red Wine at the front desk and apparently the hotel only has one type of Red Wine available which is a Bordeaux. I thought a hotel that gets reviews of being "So Amazing" should have some wine options for their guests to choose from, especially being located SO CLOSE to France. The receptionist kindly offered to bring a glass of the Bordeaux they had to my room, along with some chocolates for dessert. I accepted, and this actually ended up being just right. The receptionist's colleague who brought the wine and chocolate to my room was extremely kind, friendly, and talkative. I enjoyed having him as a staff member at the hotel during my stay.
The breakfast room, and the library sitting room were VERY nice and well furnished, both with fireplaces. Extremely cozy feel. The breakfast was not amazing but it was better than a standard continental breakfast.
