We stayed in a Pocket King, on the 3rd floor facing into a Terrace.
Arrival - you pull up on Queen St (One-way) put your 4-ways on, check-in & off-load your luggage.
Staff are very friendly and efficient, parking is a quick right on Charles St and another quick right just before Benton St into the parking garage( a block away).
The hotel is newly renovated - but has kept the charm of a past era, on-site Barber Shop, Tobacconist, Lounge & Coffee Shop (Coffee Culture).
Where possible they have kept the original Mosaic Tile Floors and made an effort to keep the same feel in the guest rooms.
The Pocket King was good value for your money, the room has a modern feel with one of the most comfortable King-sized beds I have ever slept in (do we have to leave?)
There is a bit of hall noise/noise from above - but nothing out of ordinary for a 'boutique' hotel.
Great hotels go out of their way to provide a unique experience- The Walper room has a Chemex Coffee Maker (I've always wanted to try) with local Smile Tiger Coffee.
The bedside alarm clock/phone doubles as a Bluetooth speaker and has several phone charging adapters (Apple old & new).
Check-out is a very comfortable noon - would definitely stay here again, wait it's 1 min to The Berlin restaurant the reason we booked!
