Bed was extremely comfortable and drinks were expensive. This renovated, upscale contemporary charmer was wonderful, the gym was decent.

              Loud construction makes for unpleasant stay, the service was not very good and the specific room I reserved was not ready I arrived in the evening.

              The hotel seems to be a bit tired, and the bed sheets were not comfortable, the food was ridiculously bad.

            • Its in a great location and atmosphere was very comfortable. Lobby, bar/restaurat area was lovely, courtyard was very European and charming, service was efficient, rooms were a little cramped except for the one corner room we had. The free wireless was very much appreciated as were the evening happy hour, the hot food serving dishes were waiting to be filled and the eggs were excellent.

              Tired, dirty place and the front desk staff seemed somewhat brusk and aloof.

            • Comfortable classy bar area and beautiful hotel. We liked the building and very welcoming lobby. The staff were friendly, the employees were happy, friendly, and appropriately professional, the rooms were nicely sized and well appointed.

              An unconscionably bad value and worst customer service ever. Pillows too hard for my tastes, not a great neighborhood and the continental breakfast.

            • The patio area beautiful and near the riverfront parks. Great hotel & staff, historic building and renovated, reasonable prices. The lobby was awesome and service was very good.

              The rooms were comfortable and clean and the location is superb for old market nightlife.

            • The only good thing about this hotel is the location and the air conditioning works well in the room.
