8/10 Very Good

Front desk staff was great, very helpful and accommodating. The place was clean but definitely could use some upgrades. Beds were a little creaky but mattress was comfortable. In a great part of town with lots of restaurants, very walkable. Trolley station about 5min walk.

Mehh stay
Kinda sucks that it’s only valet parking, you don’t have a choice to park your own vehicle. Our room had a bed that you couldn’t even toss or turn without the bed springs creaking and being loud, plus the sink in our room had a leak When you open the faucet it squirted water against the wall.
