10/10 Exceptional

The hotel staff went above and beyond to help make our stay comfortable. My daughter got sick while we were there and they went out of the way to make sure we were ok and get us the things we needed. Everyone greeted you everywhere you went and offered to help. Simple but super clean rooms. Lovely halls and sitting areas. FANTASTIC breakfasts

Highly Recommended
Our stay wonderful in very way. First it is in the perfect location: close to everything and convenient for a taxi pickup. The ambiance of the hotel was magical with interesting artwork and sitting areas throughout the hotel. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was very response and friendly. I recommend this hotel without reservation and I do not saythat often.

Beautiful, clean and friendly.
I loved the location of this hotel, it was in the middle of everything. The hotel was sparkling clean, the service is amazing, I included breakfast on my stay and was not disappointed at all. All the staff was very friendly and on top of everything. It doesn’t have an elevator, we did have to use stairs we were on the 2nd floor, it was not a problem to us, however it may be for handicap customers. The room doesn’t have AC, however they did have fans and the floors are tile and it maintained fresh during hot days. Our car was parked offsite because parking is limited, but so it is for most hotels in the area because of the way the streets are structured. My overall experience in this hotel was great 👏. I do recommend it!

Top-notch customer service & cleanliness.
Customer service & cleanliness is top-notch. I stayed on the second floor & could hear people in the lobby talking and the blenders in the morning from the breakfast service. Not a big deal for me, just something I noticed. Noise is inevitable in a historic building & a busy city. Would definitely stay there again.
