This hotel is right in the center of town and includes free covered parking. Access in and out of the garage was easy and convenient.
As others have mentioned, this is a former department store and the rooms are very large. That also applies to the bathroom with a long, double-sinked counter and excellent lighting. Very comfortable bed, sofa and fridge make for a pleasant stay.
As for the unique quality: outside of your room, is a huge central area where you can wait for the elevator or just hang out and admire the old display cabinets with mannequins in period outfits.
If there is a negative it is that the windows are sealed shut. But that's not necessarily a bad thing because it blocks out much of the street noise. There are some street people around who "play" various musical instruments. They seem pretty harmless and quite untalented so are easy to ignore.
As for the location, it is perfect. Right in the middle of everything with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. It's less than 10 minutes to the Biltmore and an easy walk or drive to other attractions.
