The McMenamins brothers struck again with this beautifully restored property! There is so much eye candy, light fixtures, paintings, historic pictures, and stories to read about. The front desk staff went above and beyond to help me out when I needed anything.

6/10 Good

Staff seems aloof and generally disinterested. Great part of town, though, and great building with a ton of history. Too pricey.

Different themes in every room makes it unique, getting ice is a hassle, but not that difficult. Staff very kind and helpful. Definitely would stay again
