Childhood Dream

Loved the stay here! Always eanted to stay here as a kid, I was a little fancy lol.The decor of the hotel took you back in time with certain pieces, but was still modern, elegant, and sophisticated. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean, lots of pillows, more towels delivered immeditaely upon request, slippers/robes provided, and a mini bar if you so desire to use it. It was quiet, and in a location easy to uber around once you valet your car. The front deak was also pleasant checking in/out. No complaints and may stay again just for a night away for me time!
