A friend accustomed to traveling first class laughed as he described the basic style of his room here—then acknowledged that it had everything he needed. The great location of the six-story brick building is its main selling point. As my friend admitted, the accommodations are comfortable and—except at the busiest times—reasonably priced. Rooms aren’t large, but the lack of frills and lots of shiny white surfaces help make the most of limited space. True, you can’t have a masseuse or a lobster sent to your room (at least not easily), but how much time are you really planning to spend in your room?
