When I'm here on business for a week at a time I LOVE having the extra space in my room that this hotel provides. No separate rooms for me, but there's an area for the bed with standard bathroom and clothes storage spaces. A small kitchen and very small kitchen table with 2 chairs, but beyond that there is a couch that could easily sit 4 and a long desk with far more elbow room and space for papers and supplies than a standard hotel room. Lots of plugs for electronics in different areas of the room as well. By Wednesday I was calling the place "home".
While the breakfast options are extensive I get very tired of the mass-cooked eggs after a couple of days. So this trip I wandered to the Safeway (at the next major intersection) and bought some eggs, butter, yogurt, ice cream, dessert, and fruit to keep in my room. I've used the eggs and frying pan to cook myself some eggs each morning, and started to bring back other breakfast items to my room from the breakfast in the lobby. I'm thinking of going back to the store for some fish and asparagus to have dinner on Friday. It would be even better if there were some cooking supplies and condiments in the room, olive oil, butter, ketchup, etc. Bringing them back from the breakfast supplies is one option.
The fitness center seems to be standard, and the equipment works well. There is a pool and hot tub, but they close at 9 and I haven't found been able to visit them yet. I do wish they were open later.
The cost of the hotel seems expensive, but in this area they ALL seem expensive. Dining out is also expensive, so cooking for myself is a way to save money overall. If I was traveling with my family this would be an even better cost savings.
