My husband and I stayed for our anniversary and the hotel staff was excellent, even had a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting in our room. The location of the hotel is unbeatable if you're in town for good food and a concert. We will absolutely be back!

Does this hotel offer parking?
Yes, the rate for in and out parking was $28 in December. You could park at the municipal lot next door which we did on 1 trip, but that was $25 and it's not in and out parking.

"A room away from the elevator"
"King rooms have a fabulous bathroom!"
"We asked for a quiet room and were on the 4th floor, which indeed was quiet!"
"Anything away from the stairwell or lift is preferable as it's an antique unit and very noisy."
"Choose something on the 2nd floor. Elevator is so tiny you have to lug your belongings up tons of stairs."
