These are all really SMALL things, but we think those small things add up to a great experience. Here are some photos, and some narrative about what you are seeing and why we think the detail level is important:
1. Make-up mirror. Here is why ours are just better. 1)When they were installed I walked through each bathroom with the carpenter to make sure each mirror was put in a place where a vertically challenged person like me could actually use it. I have stayed in so many hotels where the make-up mirrors must have been installed by someone who was 6'4" like my dad was. Tall people can bend over a bit, but us shorter versions have a hard time standing on tip-toe or worse. 2) Our make-up mirrors have two sides, one that is magnified nicely so if you have a hard time seeing without glasses, the magnified side works great. 3) There is no light built in to the mirrors. If you have ever used one of those lighted mirrors, you will see why not having the lights is actually an advantage. 4) We made sure that we took advantage of natural light wherever we could -- something that our bathrooms have but not many hotels do -- another advantage of staying in an historic hotel.
I hope you enjoy learning about some of the small details that make staying in our Hawthorne Hotel a pleasure.
And of course, I hope to see you here.
