Have you ever wanted to see something but wasn’t sure how you could make it happen? I have. Ever since St. Paul Hotel opened in Wooster, Ohio, I have been curious to see inside. Since we live here, there really is no reason to book a stay, so I figured the chances would be slim. However, in February, the Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce, held a Business After Hours event at the hotel. I knew I had finally gotten my chance to check it out!
The hotel is beautiful. It is what is considered a boutique hotel. The rooms, at least the four newly renovated rooms, are the perfect balance of contemporary and rustic design. Some of the walls were the original brick of the building, which added a nice and surprising element to the decor.
The new rooms are all furnished with king sized beds. They all have large flat screen TVs.
Plus really, really nice bathrooms. The floors have heated tiles, the showers have large shower heads. But the coolest thing is that there is a a television in the mirror in the bathroom!
I don’t mean a TV in the bathroom by the mirror, but some how the TV is part of the mirror. At first I thought it was a projection type thing because the same show they had on in the room was also playing in the mirror. Turns out that they are two separate TVs. It blew me away and kind of makes me wish the hotel wasn’t so close to home.
Although after talking to the staff, it seems like the place is pretty booked by corporate accounts and parents from students at the College of Wooster. In fact, the day of the Business After Hours, all of the new rooms, which were on display, were booked. The people staying in the rooms had agreed to not check in until after the event.
As always, the Chamber staff did a great job with everything. They even arranged to have two of the adjacent businesses, Vertical Runner and H2 included in the Business After Hours event. That allowed the attendees to check out the hotel, the running store and the wine merchant. All three places I might never have seen without the event. (I am not a runner and I don’t drink wine.)
While I might never actually stay at St. Paul’s Hotel, I can at least say I have seen it now. And who knows, maybe they offer discounts to aspiring bloggers. One can always hope!
