Let’s start by saying that there is no place like home. That said; let’s get to the important stuff!
Upon check in we were informed that our room would be next to the elevator. We expressed concern and were told that we had nothing to worry about. Reluctantly we proceeded to our room. To our surprise and amazement, the room was extremely quiet and comfortable. The pillows were amazing. As a matter of fact, the entire bed was really, really comfy. As stated previously, there is no place like home. However, given the age of the hotel, I feel that it was quaint, charming, and adequately clean.
The hotel is on the trolley line (world famous street car), so maneuvering around the city will not be a problem. However, should you desire to drive, vehicle retrieval is done quickly.
There is no exercise facility on the premises, but to my surprise, arrangements have been made for the lack thereof. With a coupon obtained from the front desk, your room key and $7.00, you can gain access to the Elmwood Fitness Center that’s located in the One Shell Square building (walking distance from hotel). I think this is a great idea as it breaks the monotony of the everyday tourist walk. You get a city view from the 13th floor, as well as the opportunity to get a glimpse the One Shell Square building. Unfortunately, I did not have the time to utilize the fitness center on this visit.
I’d like to mention that TerRon and Chante (front desk employees) were very professional and helpful.
In summary, I really enjoyed my stay and I will definitely return soon.
