"The Historical Suites are a treat with classic historical decor in the bedroom and "living room"."
"Okay views on odd numbered rooms, very clean modern rooms. Aveda products."
"The historic room suites are absolutely beautiful and very vintage!"
"I was on the 4th floor. Very quiet. There were no rooms by the elevator which I think is great."
"close to the Mill wedding venue, close to the river for outdoor adventures, not far from the University. Ask for a view."
