This is a standard Residence Inn hotel located in a former bank building. The former bank vault has been turned into the hotel breakfast area, which is interesting. There's a lot of construction happening in the lobby as a new restaurant/bar is being built. I'm sure it'll be nice when it's done but in the meantime, the noise if annoying.... More

This hotel is really cool. It is in an old bank so the architecture is beautiful and the breakfast bar is in the old vault and they have kept the door on it so that was interesting to look at. Clean room, comfy bed. Had a tiny kitchen but it was perfect for us since we had brought our leftover... More

From the minute we met the parking valet, the front desk staff, and walking off the elevator on our floor and running into the cleaning staff, we knew this was a special place.

As other reviewers have mentioned this hotel is in a beautiful old bank, and when the renovations are finished in the lobby it will be a beautiful space. Room was a good size and included a small kitchen, and it was also very useful to have a laundrette in the building rather than very expensive laundry service. Breakfast wasn't great... More

This hotel was a former bank. They have kept the lock boxes and part of the old bank within the lobby. Looking up are soaring ceilings with interesting architecture.
