This hotel is super hip. I love it when old hotels are modernized with true respect for the original historic structure. This might be the hippest Holiday Inn I've ever experienced. Trust me when you walk in, you do not get the hotel chain type vibe.
When we checked in I advised the front desk that we were celebrating one of my friend's birthdays. They promptly provided us with a complimentary bottle of champagne, champagne glasses and well wishes.
The room was gorgeous. It's a small room, but that's to be expected with an older hotel. A room of caution, if you are on a girls' trip the room will seem even smaller, mostly b/c us ladies tend to over pack. The bathroom is also smaller than typical, but it's really beautiful. The double-headed shower is amazing. I'm seriously consider buying myself one after our stay.
We had drinks at the hotel bar that night. It's a small and intimate bar area. The seats are cozy and make long conversations enjoyable and fun. The beer selection is limited, but it's a good place to be if you want something intimate and relaxing instead of a night on the town.
We enjoyed the Sunday brunch in the hotel and were amazingly surprised by what we received for the price. Generally I find buffets of any kind to be so-so and not worth the cost, but that wasn't true in this case. The buffet was worthy of a five star hotel and was packed with yummy food and tons of options. The only thing I didn't particularly like was the eclair, but one bad thing shouldn't ruin it for everything else.
