We rented three rooms on a Friday night in this historic hotel built in an old bank building. The rooms are modern and spacious. The lobby is cool and includes both a breakfast area and a bourbon bar. The location is walkable to downtown areas like Short North and North Market (about half a mile away). Valet parking is necessary...

We were two of very few people staying here during Christmas week 2016. The valet attendants were the best part of the stay. They were cordial and helpful.

This hotel is in the downtown area conveniently located to tourist attractions and several outstanding restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a standard Residence Inn hotel located in a former bank building. The former bank vault has been turned into the hotel breakfast area, which is interesting. There's a lot of construction happening in the lobby as a new restaurant/bar is being built. I'm sure it'll be nice when it's done but in the meantime, the noise if annoying....

This hotel is really cool. It is in an old bank so the architecture is beautiful and the breakfast bar is in the old vault and they have kept the door on it so that was interesting to look at. Clean room, comfy bed. Had a tiny kitchen but it was perfect for us since we had brought our leftover...

As other reviewers have mentioned this hotel is in a beautiful old bank, and when the renovations are finished in the lobby it will be a beautiful space. Room was a good size and included a small kitchen, and it was also very useful to have a laundrette in the building rather than very expensive laundry service. Breakfast wasn't great...
