We stayed there for an extended weekend in August as did several other friends who came in from out of town for a family wedding. The staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. The location is great. The hotel is really a lovely boutique hotel. The rooms were very attractive and the lobby, though on the small side, did have some seating area with a tv and coffee/tea available 24/7. There is a computer and a tv there as well (and free wi fi through the hotel)
The continental breakfast was fine- more a convenience for a light breakfast which is delivered to your room to either eat in the room or you can order it to go. The bathroom was quite spacious and nicely updated. The lot is 1/2 block away further down locust. We were on the 2nd floor and we did hear street noise- nothing horrible but we noticed they do provide ear plugs on the night tables..
All in all it was a very good choice- location, amenities, and very attentive service.
