It was quite peaceful on the 12th floor. Our room (queen suite) was beyond expectations. A person could easily live in this room, if necessary, thanks to the kitchenette....

We rented three rooms on a Friday night in this historic hotel built in an old bank building. The rooms are modern and spacious. The lobby is cool and includes both a breakfast area and a bourbon bar. The location is walkable to downtown areas like Short North and North Market (about half a mile away). Valet parking is necessary...

This is a standard Residence Inn hotel located in a former bank building. The former bank vault has been turned into the hotel breakfast area, which is interesting. There's a lot of construction happening in the lobby as a new restaurant/bar is being built. I'm sure it'll be nice when it's done but in the meantime, the noise if annoying....
