Great value hotel. It is charming with a lot of character. If you want a modern, plush hotel, this place is not for you.

The hotel was close to the locations that I needed to get to. The anility to walk and be able to get an Uber when needed was nice. The only issue I had with the hotel is the iron boards were too small. Other than that my experience was really good.

Nice hotel location and spacious room. Informal desk to check in/out but overall better than expected. There was only one cons: you can't control your temperature room. The heat was on at 76 F, we had to open the windows and get all the street noise.
