The Knick
The woman at check in was rude and condescending, but the woman when we checked out was so pleasant and awesome. There was still some garbage on the floor of our room, appeared as if they just did spot clean, not really under furniture. Other than that, location awesome, hotel is absolutely beautiful.

Great Relaxing Place to Stay
The staff and location were great. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The hallways need more lighting they are very dark and not inviting.
Lisa, us1 night trip

Wouldn't stay here again.
I can't say I would stay here ever again. There were some positives: reception was nice and helpful, the entryway was beautiful, the bar attached was fun (the bartender made great drinks), our bed was super comfy, and the hotel was in a great location downtown. Now for the negatives: the hallways smelled horrible like moldy wet dogs, the carpeting in the room looked as old as the building and has probably never been changed, there were no temperature controls (the bedroom was like a sauna, even though the rest of the place was cold), our coffeemaker didn't work, and parking at the hotel was crazy expensive for one night. It was overall an expensive stay for a sub-par hotel.
