We made our reservations based on many of the reviews on this site, so I felt compelled to say we agree with the awesome reviews this hotel was given. First of all, we booked several months before our stay, and for around $120/night, we felt we got our money's worth. I requested a corner King room at the time of booking, and we were given exactly that. We were on the 2nd floor which was high enough to see the river and watch the street below. (The room was still very quiet, though.) The decor in the room is very updated, making it feel a step above a Holiday Inn Express for sure. From walking past rooms that were being cleaned, it did seem the corner room was a little more spacious and had a bit more character.
The location was great... basically a block from the river, close to everything, really. It was perfect for our reservations at The Old Pink House- it's RIGHT behind the hotel- so, I didn't have to walk far in my heels! It was great to be so close to everything and for it not to be a pain to drop off shopping or pop in for short rest.
The bartender, Becky, is just as good as everyone said- we had one drink one evening, yet when we went back two nights later, she remembered what we ordered! Some had commented on rude staff- and I see their point- not all of the desk associates seemed... happy, but it wasn't to the point where I felt we weren't taken care of- and others were beyond sweet and helpful... so, you know, there is always someone that isn't full of personality! My only other SMALL concerns was that the Wi-Fi was S-L-O-W (but there are two computers available in the lobby) and the shower wasn't full of power, but was still okay.
There was plenty of seating at breakfast- even though the hotel was full, and there was plenty of selection- even hard boiled eggs! Just make sure you take water or other groceries you might want with you- the CVS is a couple blocks away, and is the only place we saw to get that sort of stuff... not a lot of convenience type stores in the historic district.
Parking, like everyone else said- is simple- the garage is right beside the hotel, so why pay for valet? The garage has an elevator, so getting our luggage to our room ourselves wasn't a big deal. We noticed that the lot was often full though, so I think we got lucky when we parked, and since we never moved our car while we were there, it wasn't a problem for us. We just told the girl upon check out that we didn't use the valet and we weren't charged for it.
This is the perfect place to stay if you want a modern, clean, reasonably priced hotel right in the middle of everything in the historic district!
