I absolutely love the Joie de vivre hotels, and this is one of my favorites. The room is so cozy, and some of my favorite things are the lighting, which can be dimmed so you aren't sitting in an overlit room (I hate that!), the iPod alarm clock, the super comfortable bed, the great decor, and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. The location is great- close to the freeways and easy to get to. And you can't beat the rates-- it's awesome. Also if you sign up for the Joie de Vivre "joy of life" club, you get complimentary wine or water upon arrival. So nice!
My ONLY suggestion is that they add sheers-- there are blinds on the windows, which is great at night, but if you open the blinds, everyone can see in. It'd be nice to be able to see out without people being able to see in.
