The Shaw Club Hotel is a first class, well organized and operated establishment. It has been elegantly furnished in a pleasing and modern design with many attractive and comfortable features. The very functional lobby has a lounge room for quiet reading with a Keurig always available for refreshment. A computer is also located in the very cozy room which just right in size and is fitted with attractive and comfortable seating and really puts one at ease.
The rooms have been furnished in a modernistic tone as well. The large walk in shower boasts two sources of spray, individually controlled. The large vanity mirror has a small built in TV screen for those who need that sort of thing.
However, sad to report the rooms have several severe detractions. First of all they are small by any standard and certainly for a first class hotel like this that charges over $200/ day so that after all the taxes you are paying about $300 for the room. Additionally there is no chest of drawers, just several cubbies in a big armoire (some of which are occupied by ice maker, coffee maker and video player). The spacing is so tight that with the doors to the armoire opened no one can walk around the bed. In addition the solitary hanger "rod" is at right angles to what you would normally expect so that you have to search through all the clothes in the front to get to the stuff in the back. The rod doesn't even pull out, but is fixed in place, so it is even more awkward than I have described. Other inconveniences are in the location of the lounge furniture such that you can't sit on it and watch TV.
On the bright side the personnel, especially at the front desk, couldn't be more pleasant, cheerful and extraordinarily helpful. No effort was too much for them and we relied on their help often. It was always accurate and they constantly asked for our experiences to expand their knowledge.
