This is the second time here since it opened and like the first trip it was a little overnight getaway for my wife and I. What we love is that this is a new hotel, very hip and contemporary with a clean, cool, and relaxing feel. Definitely has a European vibe and is unique...not your average US hotel. Service here has been top notch both stays. Chris helped us last stay and prior to this visit I spoke with Chris again and he was able to reserve the type of room we requested which is always appreciated, thank You! We arrived prior to check in time and our room was not ready so we spent an hour relaxing by the pool which is very nice. We got to our room and it was clean and perfect for an overnight. The room we were assigned (with balcony) is not large but it works very well as there is everything you need and a place for everything. Some guests may not like the shower and toilet areas as there is not quite as much privacy as some may prefer. You can check out the pictures on the hotel website to get a better idea but in essence the shower door opens into the room as does the toilet area door, both of which have opaque glass doors which give limited visual and sound privacy. Depending on whom you are with and your comfort level with each other could make this hotel less than ideal. A minor negative; the bath fan is a touch louder than I like and there is no way to turn it off as I tried every switch I could find to no avail. The bed was very comfortable and the view overlooking the pool and the shopping across the street is quite nice. I think one of the key factors that brought us back to this hotel is the location. With a convenient walk across the street to some very good restaurant choices such as North Italia, Houston’s, Ruth Chris, and Starbucks along with some other budget friendly food options. While this is not a luxury hotel as a couples getaway this works perfect for us...check in, relax a bit, stroll across the street for some drinks and dinner, wrap up with coffee and enjoy our room from then on and never have to get in the car after arriving at the hotel. I highly recommend a stay here especially for a convenient, romantic overnight getaway! Thanks again to the AC staff, Blessings!
