After navigating floating platform staircases, dodging living-room-level bosses, and searching for randomly appearing bathroom keys, most homeowners come to regret purchasing houses built by video-game designers. Today's Groupon offers respite from the chaos: for $49, you get a one-night stay (a $99 value) at The Senate Luxury Suites in Topeka.
The Senate regales guests with lavish Victorian brick architecture, comfortable quarters, and a wealth of amenities and nearby attractions. Overnighters can relax in a two-person studio suite complete with a king- or queen-sized bed in the main room, an office/dining area, and a private balcony for viewing Topeka's historic downtown or reenacting famous Romeo and Juliet scenes with a beloved stranger. Guests can also opt for a full queen suite, which features all the amenities of the studio suite plus a living room where a sleeper-sofa lives. Each suite is decorated with beautiful tapestries and prints by renowned artists, complementing the wonderfully landscaped courtyards and the interior hallways that serve as home to arched doorways and elaborate wood moldings.
The Senate boasts wireless Internet, expanded cable TV, individual climate control, and an exercise room with a hot tub for drowning the stresses of a long day. Visitors receive a complimentary continental breakfast (click these magic words to see the menu) and are welcome to visit the lounge on weekday evenings for a nightcap.
- My wife and I went here to get away for a day or so, the service was great, rooms excellent, and just an overall peacefull [sic] and relaxing place to go. − First L., Yahoo! Traveler
- The building is beautiful, the rooms are well-appointed and the staff is friendly. If the Senate Suites were an aunt, it'd be the one who wears vintage Chanel and always brings you unusual trinkets from her travels. − MoxyFem, TripAdvisor
