  • Liked: Staff & service

The historic building had charming features such as clawfoot bathtubs and an elevator from the 1940s.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The hotel staff were very friendly. We were able to check in immediately and the room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a great location and walking distance to a lot of restaurants, stores, and an outdoor mall.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    The old school elevator was cool and charming at first but got to be kind of annoying. Also the fact that our windows were sealed shut was a bummer but other than that we loved being right downtown!

    Great location in the center of town, quaint antique foyer where morning continental breakfast is served; fresh coffee, apples and cookies available all day.
