My husband and I spent one night at the Franklin Hotel after Christmas to celebrate my birthday, and to have a relaxing night without our sweet two year old. We were both very impressed with the Franklin Hotel, and its staff. It is a lovely decorated property with an ideal location on Franklin Street. The street noise can be loud (a man camped out on a bench across the street did like to yell at passing cars every 15 minutes in the early afternoon after check-in) so we were delighted when we saw the pillow menu that also included a sound machine.
The rooms are beautifully appointed, and quite comfortable. The bed and bedding were exceptional. The bathroom is very nice. However, it is difficult for two people to be in the room at the same time to comb hair or brush teeth because the area is small and with the position of the toilet and the bathrrom door, it is just difficult. The walk-in shower is very spacious. The room does have a make-up area outside the bathroom with a nice make-up mirror to make up for the smaller bathroom quarters.
We did have drinks at the bar in the hotel before dinner, and thought it was very warm and inviting.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at the Franklin Hotel and would highly recommend this property.
