I stayed here recently because the Marriott and Hyatt were more than twice the price. Check in was easy, though the plexiglass window was a concern. My room was upstairs and at end of hallway. The room was clean and spacious. It has a microwave and refrigerator. You are close to convention center and downtown.

We stayed in room 118, which was cute and not connected to the other rooms in the hotel. The Pros. It was super clean, spacious, had lots of character and was well-equipped with a fridge, microwave and a mini breakfast nook with stools and chairs. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and equipped with towels. The...

It's like these people have never been to another hotel and therefore have no concept of how a hotel should be. There were no amenities to speak of, no soaps, no number to call front desk, no password to the Wi-Fi, and the employees are less-than-helpful. Three of us were assigned a room with one bed and when we asked...

The room we were in was recently remodeled and was awesome. Very nice finishing, plentiful & easy access plugs for charging and very,very clean. We stayed one night in a Motel 6 and found this place the next day. Will absolutely stay here again. After reading previous reviews, this place clearly has new owners or new mngt.

We were in town for the night during the Christmas events. All the other hotels were way over priced. We told the man we wanted a CLEAN room, and I got CLEAN! The room was on the top floor. It had a kitchen, with fridge, and microwave, there was a balcony, a separate dressing room and a very large bathroom....

Well, I decided to book a room here because a friend and I were going to visit someone staying here but instead we just got our own room. It seemed to expensive at first, considering I have been to hotels that charge 40-70 dollars a night on weekdays. But I do understand this is a historical hotel and its in...

With the Marriott and the Hyatt across the street, one would expect a little better clientele. It is cheaper, but it definitely needs to be updated. I would not recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Is not the worst but if you can get another option get it, because is old (Really need remodeling), expensive (I think too much) and noisy (There live some people, talking all night). Don't have enough parking.

This hotel is simply disgusting. The rooms are tiny and absolutely filthy. It is crawling with cockroaches and lowlife clientele. To make matters worse, the management and staff are astoundingly rude, and blatantly inept. Nobody in their right mind should ever stay there.
