AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Eclectic/Unusual): I find interesting how they have repurposed salvaged items from various old factories and buildings and given them a fresh chic industrial look.
Located in the old Hyde Park area, the hotel boasts an urban chic décor with a flair for epicurean tastes, as the name suggests. Room décor is a mix of repurposed industrial with a culinary influence. The hotel location is great as it is a short walk to the village which offers a variety of shopping and dining venues. Foodies are attracted to this establishment for their culinary Epicurean Theatre which has a 40-seat classroom that offers wine tasting and culinary classes. Their rooms are modern and decorated with an industrial flair and colorful culinary inspired artwork. There is an on-site confectionary that attracts those with a sweet tooth and a wine and spirits shop. Art exhibitions occur every three months. All of the rooms have a Sound Oasis machine that sooths one as you sleep. Smoke free premises. 137 units, some kitchens. 4 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: Great location, great design, great onsite restaurants and bars.
Cons: Employees were professional but not friendly. Also, don't assume a guest has stayed at the hotel and forego explaining the check in/out process.

Disappointing

when I did suggest the parking situation and the charge was ridiculous the desk clerk became very argumentative with me as she had heard this before. The hotel was nice but did not deserve the star rating.
Pros: Staff was excellent, room was clean
Cons: The food was below par when you are expecting the best as in the name of the hotel. the bars were extremely noisy. When you pay the pricing we did and there is no public parking you would expect to not have to pay for parking also.

Short stroll to Berns steak...
Pros: Bern's Steakhouse
Cons: location...It was a first and last to stay there. Opinion only, a very overrated stay for the money!
