Baylee the night clerk is very nice and helpful. She helped me to scare my girls who thought the hotel was haunted. They loved it! The roof top bar and pub on the main level where great. Will most definitely go back and refer to friends and family that are looking for a great experience.

Found this hotel on Travelocity. Great rate of $59 a night. Beautiful property and many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Highlighted by Tally's Silver Spoon just cross the street. The hotel is classic and beautiful but the rooms have been updated very nicely recently. The shower was maybe the most water pressure I have ever had in a hotel....

I stayed here for three nights. The neighborhood is charming. It is historic and rich in culture. The hotel was built in the 1920's and has old world charm yet is clean and welcoming. The bar on the roof is incredible. We had dinner outside around a fire pit!!

This is a great place to stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Only real issue is parking: if you don't use valet, you have a block and a half walk to the parking garage. As of my stay (3/21/17) they were undergoing some renovations so there were occasional noise issues. But the workers were very considerate in making sure that...

Room was not ready at the listed check in time. Front desk staff was rude and were not accommodating at all. Bathroom was dirty in the most important places. Room was nice and updated. Price was definitely high for the service we recieved.

I stayed in one of the updated rooms. The bathroom has the most notable change with the classic subway tile swamped out for modern tile and fixtures. Well appointed but I kind of miss the old charm. And be aware, the floor plan is still from the 1920's so the bathroom is the width of phone booth. However, I love...
