The atmosphere and room was amazing. Gary was also a tremendous help! Water pressure was low when showering but overall a relaxing experience!

4/10 Fair

Sad and disappointed
The room was not up to expectations. It was old carpet and no tub. The location of the makeup area was silly (just not useable). And the shower had other womens hair in it. Not clean! The coffee was only for espresso and double espresso - so you had to go downstairs for an Americano regular cup of coffee and they charged for it! The hallways were noisy at night and early morning. When I complained they did NOTHING! I didn’t get a single nights sleep because the walls are so thin and their ability to quiet their own guests was completely lacking.

8/10 Very Good

Absolutely LOVED the Townsend Hotel. Our only compliant would be that as expensive as it is per night, there are no complimentary beverages in the room like water or coffee. Also the fact that they do not want you using the mini fridge as a fridge- seemed very odd to me. We had gone out for a nice dinner and had leftovers to bring back with us and to not be able to use the fridge to store the food was not what I would have expected of a hotel like the Townsend.

Very nice hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Room very nice. There is a key pad by the door which turns the lights on and off,request room cleaningand privacy. Just tap the button for what you want. Very nice bar and restaurant but menu limited and pricy. Lots of shopping and restaurants near by.
