Staycations R’ Us, or me rather. A short getaway is good for your overall well being. I am fortunate to have so many amazing hotel choices right here in my hometown and I chose the Renaissance Gateway for a long celebration weekend.
Let’s face it, a hotel room can make or break your stay. Here are some things to consider in a hotel room:
- Location – high up, away from the ice machine and elevator
- Size – big enough to move freely
- Staples – coffee station, free water
- Bed – nix the decorative pillows
- Bathroom – big, with a a door, and easy to use shower head
- Extras – good toiletries, reading nook
Let’s talk about this door! How unique is this design?!
I love the room, so fun and modern. The gallery wall over the bed is a mix of contemporary art in a classic black and white color combo! The wall art is quite interesting and definitely sparks conversation. I love that the bed doesn’t have a million pillows – nap ready!
The bathroom is cool, but not cold in white, black and gray tones. The dark flowers are a nice touch. It’s well appointed and a good size.
But then a glance to the right and bam, an incredible art wall – in the bathroom. Was not expecting it and loved it!
The decor is simple but unique. The settee at the end of the bed is perfect for getting dressed or relaxing in front of the television. A reading nook is always a nice feature of a room, this one is no exception in a beautiful apple green. But, my favorite piece is the trunk bench, in a rich brown with belt detail and accented with a cute pillow.
The obligatory full length mirror is a must. The rustic frame is compliments the room’s decor.
This room was right up my alley. My preference is a modern room without too much stuff and lots of unique details. I was so pleasantly surprised but really this hotel is smartly done with accents that really standout.
Next post I will share this unique space and my thoughts overall on my staycation.
Does the hotel room matter to you or is it just a place to sleep?
