Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Unique repurposed buildings with attention to details. Very clean and fun. Hope to return soon. (A bit pricey but not out of line with equivalents in Austin.)

3/5 Okay

Meh
Well designed and clean hotel. I splurged because of the big, beautiful walk-in shower shown twice in the pictures, but there was only a cramped, shallow tub and a very annoyingly drafty shower curtain blowing into me while in use. Not a high-end experience. They did bring up room service from the in-house restaurant. Good food, however they double charged me, along with a false mini bar charge of $70. The woman who actually checked me in and out was great but there were no check in details provided after I booked on VRBO. I called to clarify and the woman who I spoke with was pretty rude about answering what she clearly thought was a dumb question; odd, since contactless check-in has become standard everywhere else. But what do I know? I’m just a lowly Bnb host.

Sleek, modern loft
Very modern loft style rooms. Thoughtful decor. Beds are very firm and low (platform). We enjoyed our stay, but a little pricey for the accommodations.
