A different view of downtown Binghamton
Posted Nov 22, 2016
This hotel has a vibe that it once was very pristine and luxurious some number of decades ago, but has strayed away from that in recent years as State street has become the place to be for all college students in the area. Being 25 years old, I still enjoyed the location of being on the same block as all the bars, but those looking for a more quiet experience should know what to expect.
The staff was all very accommodating and the room was adequate, but a mattress and television upgrade may be in store. The hookah bar lounge on the first floor was a pleasant surprise and we found ourselves hanging around there longer than we expected after spotting it. The service was great and they have a decent selection of beers to purchase as well.
All in all, I had no idea what to expect, but enjoyed our stay here for one night while visiting some friends in the area. The hotel exudes that it was once a very lively, late evening destination for anyone in the area, but nowadays the staff are doing their best to adapt to demographic changes in the area, and I commend them for their efforts.
