The hotel is a gorgeous building with a historic feel. Guest rooms were impeccably clean and modern. I felt comfortable in my room. Downtown location is excellent. 24 hour front desk staff and great refuel/snack area.

First, great location and cool property overall. Rooms a bit quirky (old offices) but lots of space and functional. There is a great art/lounge area to sit in adjacent to the lobby and the convenience area has good options for easy snacks and drinks. Now, the not so great. While the check-in was friendly and helpful, the housekeeping was absolutely non-existent. Room was clean when we arrived but we didn't get service any of the three nights/days we stayed. They probably forgot to tell us at check in that we needed to ask for service if we wanted. We did ask after our second night for someone to at least come and take away used towels and empty the garbage cans. That was never done. We also asked for more towels on the second day, as we walked by the desk to our room. 45 minutes later, no towels. The room phone did not work. My husband went down to get them and waited for them to hand them to him. The valet gets backed up pretty quickly and we ended up parking on the street the third night as there were cars stacked up and we didn't feel like driving around for 10 minutes waiting for a spot to open up. That said, great central location in the downtown area, lots to walk and see.

Love the building and location. Beds are very comfy. Make sure you ask for a city view, otherwise you look into everyone else’s rooms. Had to keep my blinds closed. Staff at the desk were super friendly. Check coffee pot for grounds…in the water compartment! Lol
