From the outside The Roses Thorn appeared to be a four story building with simple enough architecture. The building was made of a nice stone and had many windows showing that there were many rooms in the inn to accommodate the visitors of the town. People came in and out at will and all types could be seen hanging around outside.
Once entering the inn you are met with a pleasant atmosphere. The two story common room of the inn was usually filled with guests from all over Gaia. The inn was elaborately decorated, with trophies of the most interesting kind, some heads of interesting beasts, others simple tokens given by the travelers for the inns services.
The bottom floor of the inn held a long bar where patrons would go to get their food and drink if they didn’t wish service from the bar wenches that worked in the place. The walls and floor were filled with wooden tables of various sizes and comfortable chairs to match them. Long one wall was a large fireplace with a couple nicer cushioned chairs for special visitors to enjoy the heat of the flame from the hearth.
Above you was open space looking up into to the other three floors of the inn. Each floor had a balcony that ran the sides of each side of the inn. Each balcony overlooked the entire place. The ceiling of the inn was covered in a gold looking substance that made the place glitter all the more. From each balcony patrons could be seen moving about to and from their rooms, each door opening up to look over one of the gorgeous balconys. The higher you lived up in the inn, the better the status of you room.
The second floor of the inn had deep wooden floors polished to a shine each morning. The rooms here were for private parties and such. Each room held its own small bar and one very long table prepared to sit twenty guests. The rooms were rented out for birthdays, wedding receptions, and meeting of the guilds. Each room was decorated nicely with nice carpets and statues.
The rooms on the third floor were the main type of room rented at the inn. They were common rooms with one single bed, a night table, a desk, and a wardrobe. These rooms shared one large bathing room that was sufficient for quick baths and cleaning up, but most everyone enjoyed the bathhouse that lay not far from the inn.
The top most floor of the inn is where the high class visitors stayed. Each room was almost like a small home having its own bedroom, living area, kitchenette, and small bathroom. The bedroom housed a nice double bed with two night tables, a large wardrobe big enough for two and a standing full length mirror. The living area had a couch with end tables and a small private stage where dancers could be brought up to entertain the guest in private. The kitchen held a small stove and an icebox where the patron could store their own small amount of food and beverage. The bathrooms contained the proper toiletries and a small wash basin for the use of the patron. Visitors who stayed on this level also had the enjoyment of private room slaves who saw to it that the sheets were always clean and that the visitor was always cared for and comfortable.
The inn was one of the most popular places in Midgar as beautiful as it was functional. One of the unique things about the Inn were the dual ways to get to the actual floors the rooms were on. Off to the side of the main room a minotaur stood chained to a small section of wall. Beside him stood an elevator in which patrons would step in and close the gate. After saying the floor they wished to visit, the minotaur would take up the chains in front of him and using the pulley system raise and lower the elevator for the guests off the inn. The other was an almost hidden set of stairs in the very back of the Inn, seeming to blend almost seamlessly with the wall, that allowed manual climbing to the floors above.
