I have to admit that I had not previously heard of the Larkspur Landing chain, but on finding a good rate for a weekend stay in June, and seeing the good reviews, I decided to give them a go, and was extremely impressed.
Right from the start, the check-in process was extremely friendly and efficient. The room was larger than I expected, and contained a true full kitchen, very handy, especially for people making a long stay here. The bed was extremely comfortable and I slept better here than at any other hotel on my trip. A proper desk with plenty of power outlets, a comfy chair, and a good-sized bathroom were also all plus points. The air conditioning worked well and was quieter than many, with a wall-mounted thermostat allowing very precise temperature control.
The wifi offered three speeds, the slowest (1 megabit) for free, with two faster options being available at a charge. I expected this to mean that the free wifi would be pretty useless, but in fact it was extremely fast, far over the promised speed, and would be very suitable for video conferencing or other business work.
The only downside I can think of is that the room I was in, 101, was near to two fire doors leading to the stairwell and a side exit. While convenient for parking, as I could park right outside the room, these doors had no damping so whenever anyone used them, they slammed closed with a noise and force that shook the room. Fortunately nobody used these doors overnight, but if they had, it would certainly wake all but the deepest sleeper. Other than that, the room was extremely quiet.
While I'd not heard of this hotel before staying, it will be top of my list next time I'm returning to the area!
