The design of this hotel is rather weird. You enter on the ground floor which you realize is also the entry to the parking garage. In the first floor lobby area the ceilings with the exposed pipes and ducts looks a little like a parking garage ceiling. The elevator shows 10 floors but 5 of those are parking and floor 6 is actually the first floor of rooms. I guess they are worried about rowdiness in the elevators as they are padded much like you would see in cell for unstable people (see the picture) I was on floor 9 and the room was quite quiet and very clean. The bathroom is very modern, and the stall shower with the glass door was quite elegant. (No tub). The room was quite stark, white walls with no pictures or wall accessories. but the ceiling was very strange. You could see the seam marks from the plywood forms used to contain the wet cement when the floor above was poured, (See the picture) It is the exact same ceiling as in the parking garage but it was painted white to show it was a hotel room. The bed was fine, and the lounge area was excellent. Linda the bartender was very friendly and provided excellent service.
