We stayed in rm. 404. A huge wave of mustiness and some kind of floral fragrance hit us as soon as we opened the door. We were able to open the windows a tiny bit to dissipate the odor. We requested a refrigerator for our room which was not there when we arrived. A call down to the front desk soon solved that problem. A very nice young man named Iam brought it into the room and set it up for us. He also assisted us with the luggage cart. This “suite” does include two bathrooms. The main bathroom is small but serviceable ( although what’s up with the toilets being so tiny and low to the ground?) The second bathroom is meant for hobbits. It is tiny! My daughter and I used it in a pinch but my 6’, 230 lbs husband could barely get through the door. The room is advertised as having a small sitting area. Small is the operative word.. it’s basically two chairs and a table under the tv The absolute worst aspect of this room was the beds. Both queen beds were extremely hard. So hard, my husband and I woke up with sore hips and shoulders. These were probably the worst hotel beds I have ever had the displeasure of sleeping on. The pillows were not much better. Room 404 is tired and in need of a good update.

Scott, thank you for sharing your experience at the Hawthorne. We do not shy away from the fact that our rooms range in size from 95 sq. feet (that's our 'economy') to just about 300 sq. feet (double queen) and our bathrooms are compact. However, that does not mean you should have had an uncomfortable stay. Our mattress are made locally and are "firm" -- we do offer pillow toppers in case you prefer a softer sleep. We will have our "sleep expert" inspect the beds in your room as we do want our guests to have a restful night.
