The construction in the hotel was very well enclosed and not disruptive. The in house restaurant was average but poor service. the pool and fitness centers were very nice. Got the feeling that...

Nice room and very nice environment except a lot of construction going on in the hotel and on the streets surrounding the hotel. I was on the 3rd floor and I did not find it disruptive at all. Nice lounge are that had a feeling of classic style.

Lovely old train depot converted into a hotel and banquet center with restaurant. Modern decor - very clean, neat and well maintained. Very nice staff. The beds were incredibly comfortable with plenty of pillows. The property was quiet - no elevator noise or rowdy guests while I was here and there was a wedding in the banquet area. The restaurant...

Stayed at the hotel for a conference. Everything was satisfactory. The hotel is in an interesting building and features a blend of classic and trippy (in a good way) ambiance. The hotel bar and restaurant areas are very inviting. Restaurant menu is very limited and a bit pricey, but that's not unexpected. Service and employees were great. The employees, from...
