Color and convenience add spice to this attractive downtown hotel.. The Scene This 62-room hotel is a simple stucco building with pleasant European touches like wrought-iron balconies, a Mediterranean-style courtyard, and vibrant fuschia bougainvillea. Aveda bath products, Peet's coffee, Bose CD radios, faxes, printers and high-speed Internet access add valuable convenience and brand-name stature to each and every room. Like the accommodations, conference rooms are both high-tech and elegant with wireless Internet access and private garden terraces.
The Details Rooms are colorful and cheery with a skillful blend of modern and country design. Bright pink and mint checkered fabrics spice up the pale green carpet, while tailored pastel fabrics soften the strong curves of a modernist canopy bed. All have down comforters and private balconies, and many rooms also come with a fireplace and whirlpool tub. Suites with a wet bar are also available.
Heavy doors, beautifully appointed room, antique bathroom fixtures add a unique touch, so quiet I slept until 10 a.m.! Coffee service in the hallway was very classy and the coffee was very good. Il Fornaio makes the whole place smell great. I listened to smooth jazz on the Bose stereo in my room -- absolutely perfect.
