Staff was so courteous and genuinely helpful. They welcomed us, including our energetic puppy, warmly. Brandon @ the front desk, was professional and just all around wonderful. Great boutique hotel in a terrific location. Without hesitation, would stay here again.

Glazed and Infused crème brulee donuts are sinfully delicious. A must try! It's a short walk on N. State St., so don't miss out.

Overall excellent

Hotel is clean, rooms are spacious. Overall a good value, but a bit out of the way depending upon which business district you are operating in.

Great hotel in a convenient location

Rooms and staff are phenomenal. The business center arrangements are fairly awful though. I was charged almost $30 to print a few simple documents.

Sexy and chic

Lovely staff. There was a line when I checked in, but it moved quickly. Staff were engaging and warm as well as efficient. I love a good hotel lobby and this one has a chic and comfortable "living room" with a gas fireplace. Coffee, tea and a hot chocolate bar are served there in the morning. Great place to read the paper and people watch. Room was chic, spacious and great city view. Only complaint was that several of the light switches seemed to be broken. We had drinks and dinner in the hotel restaurant, SABLE, before heading to the theater. Service and food both great.

Really nice hotel. Relaxing lobby area and great restaurant off the lobby. Pool is modest but at least there is one. Rooms are small but very sharp and clean.
