When I walked into the lobby, my first impression was, “Casablanca.” Albeit, the movie was in black and white, and this hotel’s lobby itself was a sunny yellow. But the wicker chairs and palm trees and overhead ceiling fans reminded me of a scene out of that legendary Bogart movie. I got the feeling I was in for a great adventure.
I knew I was in for a real treat at Eugene’s showcase boutique hotel when I was offered a glass of wine at the check-in table. Yes, I said “table,” a brilliant first impression of a darling hotel where you pull up a chair and sit down to check in while sipping some soothing vino.
