Fair 4.0
Beware. Posted photos on are NOT rooms
Caveat Emptor!! Although a cool old building in I nice neighborhood ,the photos posted on the site are NOT the rooms of the hotel...or at least where they stuck me. It's a very disingenuous misrepresentation. When I mentioned to the front desk that the rooms posted online are far different than the room I was in they were nice and simply said we're sorry to hear that you're disappointed. I have a feeling that they may hear that type of response quite frequently. The rooms have a feel of that of a youth hostel. Obviously, I won't be back.

Fair 4.0
Love the boutique hotel and have stayed a number of times prior. Scoring is low as each night around midnight to 2:00 a.m. either an adjacent unit or restaurant was doing food prep causing significant odors that could not be eliminated. Love cooked onions and curry....just not at those hours.

Exceptional 10.0
Our stay was great! The hotel had a lot of charm and the front desk staff were super polite! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was nice and but the bartender was very rude and impolite! Other than that oir stay was amazing!

Enjoyed the amenities of staying in a suite. The room was dated but comfortable.
