Upscale hotel without the price
My husband and I booked a night at the hotel as a one-night getaway. We wanted something with a more "grown up feel", as we left the kids at the sitters. We were a little surprised when we went to the front door to enter the lobby to find it locked and a call button on the side of the door. We buzzed it and an attendant answered right away. We explained we had reservations and he came and opened the door for us immediately. Thinking back, the level of security is unfortunately necessary for that part of town :(. Anyway, check in took under 5 minutes and were told we could park in the secure covered parking if we wish. Not wanting to leave our vehicle on the street, we went ahead and did the covered parking. It is $8 per night, but with a room card, its free! It was gated and everything. We went up to find our room small, but quaint and very comfortable. Most importantly, it was clean and well stocked. You know how you go to hotels, shower in the nice facilities only to realize you are provided with a towel about the size of a hand towel to dry off with? Not the case here! We had full size towels! We headed for the Mezzanine level to partake in the free drinks and dinner. We did not do dinner, it was just hot dogs with sides, but we wanted something a little more upscale. The drink list was limited, but for free, they provided us with name brand liquors; if that's important to you. The 3 drink limit was way plenty for us. Would definitely stay here again!
