Nice one night stay

Help behind the front desk was not useful, they couldn't make useful recommendations for dining, activities, etc. The valets working the driveway were super helpful and friendly.

Great location to walk to various attractions.

Great customer service.

Convenient location

This hotel was better than I expected. Place was a great stay! Will definitely come back here.

Big room. Parking is a challenge however if you drive a truck or a taller vehicle. Make sure you valet.

No parking

Kind of a boutique-y. Really nice. I brought my 2 dogs

The customer service at the Hotel is terrible, specifically the representative named Bianca I will never recommend anyone with common sense to stay there. The hotel is raggedy and falling apart it’s very easy to tell that it is a old hotel that has been poorly remodeled.

The staff is wonderful and kind the hotel itself is just dirty old and rundown .I’m not one to complain but we checked in and there was stuff in our toilet . Immediately checked out the windows and mirrors were dirty in the room I couldn’t stay . Like I said the staff was wonderful no complaints just a dirty hotel

Was a very disappointing stay. The Internet was down more often then up, never was able to stay online for more than an hour without losing connection. TV was hard to operate, had issues turning it off and on. When I called the front desk from my room numerous times through out my stay they never answered. I stayed 2 nights and they did not clean my room on the one day that I was staying in my room.

Very nicely updated and tech friendly hotel. I'd definitely stay here again!
