This is not your traditional hotel, thank goodness. The Opus lobby is a real wow for the senses. Obviously the staff is cherry-picked for their attractiveness and to go with the young, contemporary and stylish looks this hotel exudes. Where else would you find a lobby person dressed with coordinated purple infused dress shoes to match their striped dress shirt and the lobby lighting? This hotel is all about design and fashion.
The standard guest room can be a little on the small side; but, it is amazingly comfortable. The clean, all white sheer curtains gave the room a large look. I loved the crisp pressed white bed linens. They felt so good.
The nightly turn down service is sensational. There is a total blackout shade rolled down at turn down to give the late night celebrants the chance to sleep in. There is even a small stereo system in the room that is tuned to really nice music at turn down. The bedside carafe of drinking water is useful and an environmental friendly alternative to plastic water bottles. Like an ocean liner, the best housekeeping service is that which is never seen...it just magically happens. And so it is at the Opus.
Controlling the lighting in the room was a bit confusing and one needs to go back to the switches at the room's door to control them. And if the hotel could get the neighboring building's 7:30 AM waste removal truck to come later would be a welcome treat for late sleepers. The high speed internet service, while a little pricey, was excellent.
The bathroom toiletry amenities are pretty nice, too. The bathroom is clean and stylish with its glassed-in shower, that could easily accommodate two people, and sparkling metal sink basin. The overhead shower heads feels so good, even if having to shower alone!
The room has a generously stocked mini-bar which I did not discover until I was preparing to depart. That was probably a good thing for me. There was a vast collection of "goodies " discretely hidden away in the base cabinet which could sustain a party for two should they elect not to emerge from the room for a couple of days.
It would really be hard to find something not to like when stay at this hotel...even if staying alone. This is one sexy little hotel...
