Location is ok, many things are within walking distance. Staff was nice. The rooms are dated and the furniture shows obvious signs of wear. On the walls, there were obvious parts where they tried to touch up the paint and it doesn’t match the rest of the wall color. For the price of this hotel, I was disappointed in the rooms and didn’t feel like it was worth the $$$.

Friendly staff, enjoyed the mobile concierge interactions. They seemed knowledgeable but weren’t able to secure hard-to-get resos. Service at Sunday brunch was super slow but they seemed short staffed. Outdoor rooftop pool had limited poolside seating. Wish there was a lounge for nightcaps. The wifi was horrible.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel itself is very pretty - it occupies an old building but has been nicely renovated. I was dismayed to find that there is no concierge to help with dinner reservations or anything else and that guests are on their own for that. The bathroom was very disappointing as well. We had a king deluxe room and the bathroom was quite small with louvered doors that offered ZERO privacy. Our rate was nearly $700 a night and for that price I do expect a bit more in the way of service and amenities. The common rooms were ok but I highly recommend that a cleaning crew needs to arm themselves with a box of Magic Erasers and spend a few days scouring all the painted surfaces to remove all the wall scuffs and marks on the walls, baseboards and back of the doors. The restaurant is not bad and the bar is very nice. Staff was friendly. I rate it 7.5 out of 10.

We asked if they had a safe behind the front desk and they said they did. Upon check-in they told us that they do not have any kind of safe.
