We stayed overnight while in town to see friends. The hotel is a short drive from the trendy downtown bars and shops and the area it is in felt safe. We didn't have time to enjoy the restaurant or lounge but the menu looked yummy.
The rooms are pretty and I loved the extra area outside the bathroom with sink and mirror. It made getting ready in the morning so much easier. The shower was very clean and the curved curtain rod made it more spacious. TV was a little small but worked fine.
Check in was quick and they do have bell service if you need help. The young lady at the front desk was very sweet and helpful. Didn't have much need for help from the staff but the ones we did encounter seemed very nice.
They have a fitness center that my hubby would have loved to have a chance to use but we didn't have time. It looks well equipped and clean. We didn't see the pool so I can't say anything about that.
I only have a few complaints. The lobby is an atrium so the noise in the morning from people at breakfast was a little loud. It did wake me up and we were on the 7th floor. I also was very glad I brought my hair dryer from home. The one in the room was weak and sounded like it was going to give up the ghost at any moment. I didn't ask for a new one thought since I had mine. They probably have extras for guests if you request one.
Overall a lovely stay. We got a great deal and it was in the perfect location for us. We will be back.
