Once you get past the small rooms and slightly odd-smelling bathroom, this is a wonderful boutique hotel to stay in. Front desk staff definitely made an effort to be helpful, and the beds were quite comfortable. They even put both firm and soft pillows on the beds so we got to pick whichever one we were more comfortable with. The continental breakfast was quite interesting; there were cinnamon buns, biscuits w/ gravy, Yoplait yogurt, "egg" omelette with Cheez Whiz, and the regular continental breakfast goods.
The proximity to State Street and the 24-Hour Fitness on State Street is a HUGE plus. I'm so glad I found this place on TripAdvisor.
