I was super excited to stay here after seeing all of the photos (and the look of the place lives up to them). Unfortunately there were other little things that took away from the stay.
Noise - we could clearly hear the conversations going on in the room above us as well as footsteps. Maybe next time I'd request to be on the top floor.
Room - while it had the lovely ceiling and exposed brick, it reeked of cigarette smoke (which was confusing, because at check-in we had to sign something specifically related to not smoking in the room). The room seemed to have only two temperatures - freezing or sauna. The temp wasn't regulated well, and when the a/c kicked on it sounded like a jet engine every time. Last complaint would be the windows - they lacked a shade or curtain to properly block out light. This had me awake very early in the morning.
Despite what seems like a lot of negative, I might stay here again if the situation called for it; it's not a horrible hotel. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly. The bed was comfortable. The attached restaurant is wonderful - I was so impressed. Entrees ranged from $15 to $25 for the most part, and I know I've paid more elsewhere for food not nearly so good. Nice craft beer list as well.
