lean and classy but noisy
The place was clean and had a great location in the heart of South Congress. The flip side of that is it's in a noisy location. We went to bed around 1am but it's still pretty noisy outside until 3ish. I guess that should be expected due to the location but it made for a rough night's sleep.

It’s in a very good location, the Bouldin neighborhood. But the hotel has a dark ambience, dimly light areas and rooms. Wish the room had brighter lights: even with 3 lamps and a string light bulb it’s very dim and dark in the room
