9.7 Excellent
Comfortable. I like how you can choose your own room on the app!

Not sure if this is something you could do better, but I could hear dogs barking from our room. Thankfully did not hear it all night long!

4.0 Mediocre
The bed.

The room beds talc. The ceiling pant was flaking, the tv ( right side was malfunctioning, and ice machine in hallway a few doors down could be heard in our room. The e tire floor sounded as if we were in the engine room/ boiler room.

8.0 Great
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable.

The parking garage was hard to get to.

8.5 Great
The staff is great. The historic nature of the hotel is impressive. Location is central and steps from restaurants and entertainment. Bed was comfortable.

The room and bathroom were small. Furniture was basic hotel-grade as were the linens and towels. Shower curtain was flimsy and frayed. The room was pretty, but there was nothing luxury or high-end about it. It was a very standard grade hotel room for the price.

6.2 Okay

Need to have free Internet. It's 2015
