Attentive Service
Wonderful service, gorgeous and clean room. Continental breakfast is a true, full breakfast. Location is also great - lots of nightlife. We loved The Birchwood - would definitely come back.
Jennifer, us1 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Great staff and stay, building needs upgrades.
The only issues we had were with the building itself. The staff was amazing and the convenience with the places to eat and drink upstairs and downstairs were wonderful too. The things we did not like: no mini fridge and no ice machine, the way the lights were set up was a breaker basically by the front door and none of the lights would work without this on, and then it’s either none or all lights. That made for a bright trip to the bathroom middle of the night. Majority of hotels now have USB plugs in the room, the room we stayed in had a hook up for an iPhone4 (time to upgrade), we didn’t bring charging blocks as every hotel now usually has the USB plugs in the lamps or alarm clock. The shower water never got hot. It was luke warm at best after running for a few minutes and since the bathroom is an open floor concept it with no curtain or walls to hold in any steam, this made showers pretty much a cold experience. Great place and concept but for close to $500 a night, the average Holiday Inn should not be a better stay in the rooms. Staff was wonderful and we loved the town. Just think the building needs some upgrades.
