No parking unless you pay $25 a day to valet. rude staff. charged an extra $50 for the room to be cleaned. We will never stay here again & we will make sure none of our friends do either!

Great Location

The bar has a very nice atmosphere, live music and the food is good. The room was too small for almost $400 usd a night, great location though

Perfect location, friendly staff.

It was a beautiful boutique style hotel and it's pet friendly so it was nice to see people with their pups. Free wine in the lobby around 5pm was awesome! The hotel bar and restaurant were wonderful. Very close to tons of shopping, restaurants and the beach. The shower was huge and everything was clean and well maintained. I highly recommend!

Awesome Hotel!!

I was hesitant to book this hotel as it is quite expensive, but as soon my friends and I got there I knew we made the right choice! The hotel is right across from the beach and Huntington pier, and main st. (where all the action is) is just one street over. It was nice to park our car when we got there and not need to use it again b/c the hotel is within walking distance of everything! The decor and artwork in the hotel is modern and beautiful. The staff were super friendly and helpful, if you get a chance to sing for a room upgrade - do it!! We definitely had a great stay here! Would have been nice if parking and WiFi were included but not a big deal considering everything else.

Outstanding location, friendly staff.

Best hotel in HB, I've stayed at the Hilton and Hyatt. Beds are very comfortable. The shower is a little tricky, just toss a towel on the floor and you're good to go. I will return.
