The architecture of the hotel was gorgeous as well as the atrium in the middle. We had a balcony overlooking this area and it was peaceful to sip coffee on while listening the live music downstairs. However you can see right into your neighbors room if their door is open on the balcony as well.

Unique and charming. Love the old victorian feel. Favorite part was the open court yard/relaxing area with the trees and fresh outside air. There were some minor issues with our room but nothing major. Would stay again

Website doesn’t say it, but the valet is not 24/7, so plan accordingly if you’re arriving late.
