For man version -skip to the end.
Hubby and I stayed one night in a Traditional Queen size room on the fourth floor. We were in town for a wedding but made the reservation the day off, while on route (shhh, don’t tell the bride). The wedding we would attend was not at the hotel, but we were aware that at least one wedding group was occupying a floor. We asked if it was possible to check in early; the front desk rep. was careful not to guarantee it but said they would try. Housekeeping came through-thanks guys! And we got to check in early.
The front desk staff was not particularly warm (they may have been tired and or stressed-nothing like a couple of wedding groups for tension to run high front of the house. Yes, I’ve worked the desk back in the day. Two agents were manning the desk when we arrived. Umm, not at all their fault, but let’s just say that the search for a uniform that communicates -I’m professional yet attractive and therefore approachable, and trustworthy, yeah that search should continue. Check-in went smoothly; my husband’s credit card had been taken and authorized when we called. We asked what the room price was including all the taxes so there were no surprises later. Within 5 minutes we were in our room.
My first impression of the room was small but fresh and clean-more points for housekeeping! A closer look showed the décor to be understated but stylish-a few simple furnishings with clean lines and a pleasant color palette (soft furnishings were grey, white and red). I loved the shelving a containers in the closet-odd but it somehow made the room a little homier-such a small touch communicated- maybe not so far from home. We ordered room service soon after we got to the room-never go to a wedding hungry. While we waited, it registered that while the room was adequate for two, three would have been uncomfortable. Room Service arrived quickly. We ordered clam chowder, a hamburger and fries. The hamburger was ok, fries were good and chowder-very yummy. Definitely try the chowder. The attendant pointed out that the gratuity was already added in. How nice-no attempt to gouge us! If I carried cash that alone would have earned him a tip.
The bathroom had a shower and a single sink & faucet; the counter space seemed long, but not quite long enough, for me and hubby to use the mirror and counter comfortably at the same time. Yes I confess to monopolizing it. For those wondering, we are average sized people (size 6 and 36), thank you very much. I really liked the wood looking shelf that housed extra towels under the sink. It ran from one end of the bathroom to the next. Had we planned a longer stay, I would have had a ton of room for toiletries and other feminine accoutrements. I hadn’t seen the dispenser for shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in any other hotel shower so far, so I found it unusual and a nice touch. It was probably a great way to save on the usual mini hotel shampoo and conditioner-smart move GM. Had the water pressure not been as good as it was, I would not have cared for them. A small thing but I liked the small metal mesh basinet (it allowed for drainage) for bath-soap.
We got ready, left for the wedding and return later that night. The bed and bedding were comfortable and we slept well. The bed seemed big, must have been a king Check out went smoothly the next morning. Before leaving we had brunch at the restaurant. Hubby and I split a fruit and yogurt parfait (very yummy-you should try it), ham and cheese omelet (you can skip it), French toast (skip it), and OJ (please sir, may I have some more). The waiter also brought over a basket of pastries-croissants, turnovers and tarts (they were good-enjoy). There was an elderly lady who sort of floated around the restaurant. I decided she was the owner’s elderly aunty who may have worked there before the dementia set in, and he just can’t bring himself to keep her away; she seemed pleasant and harmless.
I enjoyed our short stay at the 4 points-my first stay at one. I was comfortable enough to say I would stay here again if we needed to be in Norwood. There was a Courtyard just across the street, but I’m not tempted.
Man Version-we stayed for one night, traditional queen size room, big enough for two but not three, nice and clean. Ask for the price with taxes included. Hamburgers here are ok. Definitely try the clam chowder. If wife is with you, order the fruit parfait with whatever else she wants. Room service is fast and good people. You’ll sleep well in comfortable bed. Good hotel would stay here again.
