As most places they seemed short staffed. The parking valet situation was terrible, worst in my 30 years of traveling. The staff that was there were nice, just too few. The hotel is loud basically because of all the partiers.

It’s better than we expected though the pictures on the web are already look nice. It’s very quiet with beautiful views. We will stay here again if we’re coming back.

Beautiful

Heating and air system under par, comfortable beds, clean

It is historic.

The rooms that my friends and I stayed in were very clean and attractive. The bed and pillows were fantastic! The staff was very friendly and the restarant and bar were great. I would highly recommend the breakfast. The hotel is located in a perfect location for seeing all the sights. The only downfall is the size of the bathrooms. Being an older hotel, I can understand that this is something difficult to cure, but I saw three and they are the smallest bathroons and I ever seen! The price was very reasonable, and I was very pleased with the accomodations. I would stay there again despite the size of the bathrooms!

The best thing about the property was the location and the historic aspect to it. It was very easy to walk to downtown locations from the hotel. It was in good shape, but because it is an old hotel, the bathrooms are very small. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay.

Nice jazz hotel atmosphere. Too much street noise on one side and too much industrial fan noise on the other.

Perfect location. A little dated but it didn’t matter. Tiny bathroom but worked fine.

Beautiful central hotel with grandeur and history. Wonderful location also.

Great location. Rooms in need of a rennovation. Very noisy at night.

The hotel location is great and walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The room was decent size but the bathroom is extremely small, felt like I was in a closet. I sign up for a specific rate on orbits however when I go to the facility was charged extra for the second night. This was frustrating but after driving 3 hours did not feel like arguing with staff. Don't sign up for valet parking, the parking lot is right next to the hotel.

The staff is so friendly and the hotel is beautiful. We loved our meal from the on site restaurant - The Swamp Fox. It’s a wonderful place to stay!

Hotel needs some renovation work. The toilet wouldn't flush and some of the furniture pieces are quite old as well as the elevators. Super clean however and the staff were nice.

Great location across from Marion square and C of C. Pleasant, informative staff. The front desk gets an A .

Super cute historical hotel! Will def be back. They are taking all necessary precautions at this time

Great location and friendly staff! The hotel was very charming and cute. Loved how close it was to shopping and dining.

Great location that is walkable to many restaurants/bars.
