Recent guest reviews

Everything was perfect. I highly recommend dinner at the hotel and the bartender also does an excellent job.

Nice hotel, but wrong one for our family. We selected this hotel for a family vacation. Although the hotel is nice, we did not get a welcoming feeling. Hotel staff was lacking at front desk and concierge was not available. A museum district hotel would have been best.

the service is profect. and environment is also good.

I had a meeting at The Chevron building one block away so I booked the Whitehall. It's a !970's era 12 story in the Shadow of 21st century 30 story buildings. Newly refurbished, it's a better than adequate place to stay The rooms, though small by today's standards are nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. The staff is excellent!

It was ok for couples with small children. Wish it had bigger beds for couples to share as it was very cramped.

Most of the staff was great. Great location, nice hotel, very comfortable rooms, very clean rooms. We bought breakfast tickets ahead of time and had a HORRIBE experience at their restaurant. Restaurant staff was were not familiar with the menu, were not able to take our order, we waited for food for about 45 minutes and ended up leaving to our appointment on an empty stomach.

Wonderful comfortable stay, only negative is no microwave.
