The hotel is very clean and conveniently located. Such a great spot in little Italy. Walking distance to so many places. The cost to park at the hotel was high, so we found street parking.

The beds and pillows are so comfortable. There’s plenty of space. The location is in the heart of Little Italy and very happening. The room has strange noises that you can’t pinpoint and may disturb you in the middle of the night after the street noises die down. The shower has no door, is rain only and has no practical way for a woman to shave her legs. Also, I wish they would’ve disclosed up front that there was no maid service during COVID.

The smell was horrible and the rooms were so small you could barely move around in them. Also, there was no space to put toiletries or prepare yourself for your day!

Very concerned with night staff. 2 nights the person sat at desk looking at computer and did not say a word. Never left Ike’s up. Last night no one was at desk when I walked in.

Excellent location and beautiful room, clean and nice amenities. Great accommodating staff at front desk and also back of house staff. You won’t be disappointed. Two things to keep in mind. Saturdays are farmers market from them setting up at 4:30am and lasts until 4pm. Get some ear plugs. And if you don’t smoke, there are guests who were smoking in the early morning off the balcony walkway overlooking the courtyard. Overall this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at home in Little Italy.
