I found this hotel on Expedia - it was literally the first one I could find by organizing from the lowest to the highest price that wasn't a chain. It ended up being a true gem.
The parking situation was a little iffy at first -- it appeared to be all valet -- but we discovered a few blocks away there was ample street parking that was not time restricted after a certain hour - perfect for parking overnight. The "garden view" rooms are in a small building outside of the main hotel - the door of the room opens right into the garden - no dingy hallways with fluorescent lighting and stained carpets! The garden rooms, while not connected to the main building, are enclosed and not accessible to passersby. Quite a treat! The room was small, but really all we needed. A small refrigerator was a nice, unexpected perk. The grounds and room were clean and well kept.
The complimentary continental breakfast was fantastic. Truly above and beyond the typical powdered eggs and dry pastries. Very elegant without being stuffy - and lovely outdoor seating with bussers to remove dishes and trash.
We have already booked our return trip.
