Clean, up to date. A little farther from the historic district than we were expecting, but the free tour buses fixed that. Just a block from King Street. Lots of construction on both sides makes the area a little dusty and congested. Nice, friendly, helpful staff.

I spent three nights here last year and two nights here this year. It's a great hotel with fantastic service and comfortable accomodations. The pool is also nice to hang out by in warm weather. Perfect location a block from King Street. Anything you'd want to do downtown is easily within walking distance.

This hotel was in a close location to the historical area, but was expense on a Friday and Saturday. No view, small rooms, fairly clean. People were very nice that worked there and the breakfast was good.

Located very conveniently to restaurants and other points of interest. Very nice rooms. No issues. Only advice do not go for the balcony room really no view to sit and look at. Wish I had not paid extra for it.

I stayed at this hotel recently for a small meeting, and was very pleasantly surprised. It is a newer hotel - less than five years old, I would guess. The public space is very modern and appealing.
