Individual guest reviews

  • Great value and location, stylish design, the business center is well equipped and the lobby/common areas are serene. Guest services are excellent and rooms are updated. Nice restaurant and close to many other good ones.

    The front desk staff weren't very friendly and rather slow WiFi Internet connection.

  • Excellent service in all areas and nice, friendly atmosphere. Lovely building and a great location, very disappointing for the price. Tasteful interior and helpful staff. I loved the yoga room, nice bar and the wonderful Curr ants Restaurant.

  • Good location for downtown, nicely updated hotel and the daily facility fee is well worth. The lobby and room furnishings are attractive and modern, staff are great. A shower curtain might be helpful, currant restaurant is incredible.

    Nice renovation of an old building, bed too small.

  • Great location and staff, atmosphere was nice. The service was excellent and concierge was friendly. Our room was also good, the adjoining restaurant's cocktails were delicious.

    Not as expensive as hotels in the area, unfriendly front desk and the bed in our suite was extremely uncomfortable. The elevator was tiny.

  • Location very central to restaurants, just two blocks away from the trolly station and well within walking distance of the water front. I liked the room decor and the options and prices looked reasonable. Decorations were beautiful, the staff were friendly and the suite was nicely decorated and ample space for a suite.

    Beds are not very comfortable and the towels are very low quality.
