Stay here for a fun, chic, and urban getaway with your other half! Renovated to the 9's, this centrally-located, brick+modern accommodation is found in the heart of everything that's great about downtown SLO. Rooms, though small, are smartly designed and sexy. No detail has been spared in the rooms and throughout the property. It's furbished with this building's history in...

We just LOVE this hotel. Absolutely charming and wonderful from check in to check out. The reviews we read (4 ½ stars) do not do this place justice. We were informed of the parking situation with the Farmers Market going on from 5-9 PM and luckily arrived just in time to park in the rear hotel parking lot. From the...

What a charming hotel. Boutique doesn't cover the unique qualities of this wonderful hotel. The staff were warm and very helpful. Also, the restaurant was just what the doctor ordered. Will definitely always stay there when in the central coast area. A must stay and eat.

Loved the room. Exposed brick, luxury shower designer feel. I would describe the room as a fun cross between a steampunk hipster feel crossed with a luxury hotel. This is a boutique, they know and remember your name from check in. The barman, will talk scotch and whiskey all night, and the restaurant food and service was excellent. All the...

I love this hotel. I return to it every time I visit my kid at Cal Poly. It's a great hotel. I love the European feel and comfort. I've stayed in 4 different rooms now and each one had been unique and awesome. I love sitting outside at the Bistro and having a quiet night cap. Upstairs and downstairs it...

We came down for a quick last-minute weekend getaway. We called the night before, and the receptionist made it clear that they only had their smallest room available. We were fine with that, so we booked. Upon arrival, we were offered a complimentary glass of wine while we checked in. We had a great dinner at the attached bistro, and...

Great little spot. The Bistro is really nice as well. I almost hate to review this place as I don't want to run into a "no vacancy" next time through SLO, but everyone here was so nice and accommodating that I wanted to say thanks. Super convenient, great bar and outdoor seating area. Very cool modern industrial vibe.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch and had great service. Server was personable and made excellent suggestions. People in our party enjoyed the yummy hamburger, versatile bento box, Cuban panini, and chicken salad. Nice selection of beers. Comfortable outdoor seating.

everything perfect...but they may want to re-evaulate the only queen sized bed deal. Could fit a king--- with bedstands attached to wall. Did a great design job in the the relativeley small space they had to work with. Staff, location, town could not have been better!
