we stopped in for a light dinner after a visit to the Plains Museum. Service was friendly and competent. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Flavorful and not overly salted. The chocolate souffle and homemade ice-cream is delicious. And nice surprise.

This is a truly extraordinary boutique hotel in Fargo. We are here on business. Some of us have stayed here, and the rest of us want to. Each suite is unique and spectacular. Don't take my word for it. See for yourself.
