It’s a very loud hotel. Not ideal for quiet (lots of random booms and bangs in the middle of the night- no idea if it was maintenance or elevators or what). But it’s cute and close to everything on So Congress. Valet team was amazing.

Nice boutique hotel with art deco vibe. The pool was relaxing. Although the music playing was horrible. I like that it's dog friendly. I enjoy the SoCo area.
