We had a fabulous getaway weekend at this hotel to celebrate our 12th anniversary. The rooms were very urban/trendy with exposed brick, stainless appliances in the full kitchen, and the homey touches--almost like you own your own weekend condo. The bed was super comfy, and the kitchen/bar area was perfect for the picnic basket breakfasts they brought each morning (cheese danish was dangerously yummy but HUGE; yogurt parfaits equally as good but less naughty). We also loved the sectional couch in the living room area-- ideal for reading as both my husband and I were racing through the Hunger Games series and finally had time, without kids, to just enjoy the silence and read with a cup of coffee--ultimate relaxation!
The wine and cheese in the early evening was a thoughtful touch, as were the cookies and milk later in the evening. When we mentioned upon going out that we would be missing milk and cookies, the staff offered to take some up to the room for us for when we returned.
Staff recommended Leaf, around the corner, for lunch one day and it was just great. Also had a fabulous dinner at S.N.O.B. Staff also took the time to help us map out a run saturday a.m. and identified areas in town with concentrations of art galleries.
If this is the newest trend in B&B's, count me in. Restoration on King is hip, tasteful, helpful, and met every need my husband and I had. We will definitely return.
