great!

beautiful hotel - great service. Wish it were a little closer to the historic district, but it is within a good walking distance. The rooms are beautiful. Only complaint is that the walls are very thin. You can hear other rooms & outside very easily. Otherwise great! Super value!

Wonderful stay.

Excellent experience. Room was clean. Bed most comfortable. Front desk gave excellent recommendation for anniversary dinner and booked it for us. Also gave us a free bottle of wine for the occasion. It was nice to have a hot breakfast included with stay. Although about 6 blocks from Market area, trolley was free. Would stay again.
