Stayed here (now twice) when visiting daughter at WVU. In the past we had stayed at some chain hotels a couple of miles away. Saw this place on a travel website and thought it was a mistake...it looks like it should be in NYC.
When you walk in the front door, you realize that you are not in a corporate hotel chain. the lobby is warm and inviting. there are some growing/building pains that are evident as you walk around. but when you renovate an old building not everything is going to work out exactly as you planned.
Front desk service was great, no problems here. First set of room keys did not work. Went back to lobby and got new ones that worked with no problems. We had the double queen room with jacuzzi tub. The rooms are big, very clean, nice furniture, great bed, nice bathroom, good towels. The beds are very high, my father in law was scared he was going to fall off the bed in his sleep.
We were on the 4th floor next to the rooftop deck area. It was winter and it was closed, but we were able to walk around out there and the deck area is awesome. we want to go back in the summer to hang out at the roof bar and deck.
Breakfast was good...what you would expect at a hotel.
The only thing I can say needs addressed is the parking garage stairwells. They go nowhere! Someone had a great idea to let an artist paint some dia de morte style murals on the walls and that combined with no lights makes the stairwell look like an abandoned building in the ghetto, not an upscale boutique hotel. I understand the murals are their to embrace the theme of the bars that are on site at the hotel, but when you pay $200/night for a hotel, the murals are a turn off. They might be better received if the lighting was better and there was actually an exit.
We have stayed here twice and would definitely stay here again.
