The tiny reception area in the smallest lobby I have ever seen, clues you to what's ahead.
Room trimmings are modest--a basic curtain, coffee maker, and a smallish bed to go with the smallish TV. Noisy airconditioner and a layer of dust on the furniture that housekeeping just wasn't able to get.
All rooms have only the spring mattress option--it was difficult to get a good night's sleep.
No in-room safes and paper delivery.
Bathroom faucet in my room was loose, but it did the job.
When departing, front desk attendant did not ask how the stay went, which is such a crucial opportunity to make a good impression on the guest.
A lofty name and premium pricing doesn't make this Jewel a standout. I'd pass on it if I had the option.
