Love the free access to movie theater and soaking pool with the hotel stay. Nice quiet and clean room in the English Wing.

We liked the ‘funkiness’ of the hotel. There was a lot of eclectic art and decor on the walls, and the layout of the room with a sink in the main room and not the bathroom was interesting. The bed was comfortable and it was pretty quiet.

Gorgeous grounds, funky fun decor. Good food, friendly staff, good coffee. Schoolhouse theme-chalkboard in our room.🤓Needed more lighting in rooms, hallways, and bed lamps that are useful for reading. Thin walls. Heard neighbors talking and sneezing at night. There’s no tv in room. Four bars and several restaurants. Overall a good experience!

3/5 Okay

The hotel is very unique in an old school building. The place has restaurants, theaters, and all sorts of amenities. It is very hip and happening. My disappointment, however, was with the room itself. Everything was clean and well put together, but the bed was small, there was no TV, internet was spotty at best, so we couldn't watch on the laptop. No temperature controls, either, so we were rather chilly. The bathroom gives you one wall-mounted sink, but no real counter space. For the price of the rooms, I would have expected better in terms of design and amenities.

A beautiful, quirky hotel with a soaking pool and an amazing boiler room bar.
