I've now stayed two times at the Proximity Hotel and both stays were very nice. The first stay I arrived later in the evening after working a full day and driving several hours to get there. The second time I arrived a bit earlier than their posted check in time. On both occasions I was checked in prompty and with no problems. All of the staff was friendly and helpful and made a point to speak to me.
Unlike many modern "boutique" hotels, i didn't encounter any attitude from the staff, nor was the decor over the top and more about visuals than usability... all of the staff was eager to assist and while the room had "cool" touches like exposed concrete and a modern chaise, everything was functional and comfortable.
Each time I had the same room, 701, which is a corner room and is slightly different from the standard rooms. The room was well furnished and very clean. This room has three large windows, two in the main area and one in the bathroom. There was a flat panel HD TV mounted on the wall in the corner between the two windows. There was a generous amount of tv channels to choose from. Wired and wireless internet service was also available without an additional charge. I did have trouble with the wireless signal in this room which could have been because of the corner room. the signal was stronger the closer i moved to the core of the building but was hard to use there because of the room layout. My room had a shower but no tub. This was not a problem for me, but if you want a tub, remember to mention it to the hotel as not all of their rooms have one.
The hallway was a bit on the dark side and there was a common area on each floor with some soft seating, a computer and printer as well as an ice machine and honor fridge with drinks of various sorts.
I ate dinner twice in the adjacent restaurant and the food was excellent and the service was first class.
Several years ago i stayed at this company's "sister" hotel, the O Henry Hotel, located with in eyeshot of this hotel and was very impressed. I was equally impressed with my stays here and would recommend it for anyone who would be in the area on business or pleasure.
