thumbs up
Although the building seemed a little older, I found that to be charming to see elements of the historical structure. Room was comfortable and when checking in at the desk, the employee there was very friendly and welcoming. Convenient location being downtown, I could walk to a lot of destinations or take a short drive to others.

Convenient location and good price.

Review
Staff was super friendly. They allowed us to check in early. The room was clean and the continental breakfast was good. The only glaring issue is noise. The location is close to a hospital, so i expected some noise from sirens. I did not expect to hear the conversations of people walking up and down the street at night with the windows closed and being on the top floor.

Great Stay to Us!
I read reviews of this place prior to staying and from what others were posting, it was totally different. I had a great experience with this property. I always stay downtown area and never have at this property. The front desk agent was very kind friendly and pleasant. I didn't have any issues. The design was unique and different. The bed was comfy the room was clean. I didn't get down to breakfast though. I seen they had cookies out. I will be back being that I know myself what to expect and what not.
