Great location- close to everything! Staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is old but has a very cool vibe. Roof top area is a great place to relax and take in the views. Adjoining restaurant was great. We definitely will be back!

Got this hotel at a discounted price on Hotwire...it is an old hotel so If you like modern you will be disappointed...rooms are tiny but redone and whoever owns this place really cares and has spent a lot of $$$$ to fix it up...new carpet...many outlets in rooms..bathrooms are sparkling clean..bed is ultra comfy..neighborhood noisy esp on weekends but earplugs...
