I just returned from a four night stay at HotelRed. I found the hotel to be fun and relaxing in many ways. I appreciated having a bathrobe, slippers, large bed, a Keurig, and Aveda bath products. The shower was also top notch.
However, a few inconsistencies made the the stay "average" rather than very good or excellent.
According to the hotel website, the hotel's lobby has a business center. However, the printer was not functioning and there was really no alternative, other than sending confidential documents to the hotel staff to print. Moreover, the person working the night shift was not able to offer any guidance--he suggested waiting until the morning, but even then the problem wasn't resolved. We often used the hotel shuttle, which was great to have, but sometimes the availability just wasn't there. They didn't have the staff to cover all the trips we wished to make.
Finally, the worst part is that our room smelled very musty--like an old wet basement. In fact, we even asked the hotel staff to provide us with some air freshener, but it didn't really offer any relief. Maybe the rooms just need to be aired out because it's been a long winter--I hope that's the case.
I think the location of this hotel and most amenities make the stay worthwhile. If you have a serious agenda to get business done, maybe this isn't the best option.
