This is small boutique hotel is located within walking distance from the historic sites. We booked months ahead and had our choice of two rooms. We booked the smaller, less expensive room since we were just going to sleep there and the fellow told us it was the quieter of the two. It was workable, but it was one of the smallest rooms we have ever stayed in. As we walked passed the open doors of other rooms they seemed quite spacious, so that's something to consider. This hotel is located in an almost residential area. There are several restaurants within a few blocks. It is in the "gay district" but we didn't see any obvious signs of that other than the rainbows on the street names and the banners flying above the streets. The gentlemen at the desk were always helpful and informative. The breakfast was good. The only downsides that I can see (other than the size of the room) was getting the luggage into and out of the hotel. It's on a one way street and the loading zone is on the other side. When we arrived it was full and we had to double park. The other problem for me was that the wooden blinds don't really darken the room. It was a great stay and I would highly recommend this place. If it's full, I noticed there is a small Rodeway Inn around the corner you might try. The location was really helpful because driving and parking are really out of the question there.
