This was our second stay with the glass light hotel. Over all the say was great and the staff very attentive. The location is perfect to walk around town . The unfortunate thing is the majority of stores and or restaurants are either closed or open only a few days. Most likely from either COVID and staffing issues. I know the area will turn around when this is all over. Still a great location to visit.

Modern upgrades to what I'm sure is an older building but more than pleasantly surprised with the updates and overall feel of the property

The room was spectacular with a great view of the bay and city! I would highly recommend the corner room and high floor.

I enjoyed the rooms, but did not care for the separate garage.

Restaurant or bar wasn't open. Overall very nice.

Glass Light Hotel was epic. The staff went above and beyond to help me out with an issue I had when checking in. The place itself is a piece of art, and my room was spectacular! I only stayed one night, but could have stayed a week! Loved it!

The property itself was amazing and the room was set up really nice. Cool art spread through out, loved it. Overall we had a great time. The front desk folks we're friendly and really helpful. The only small bad spot for us was when we tried to have a drink at the bar/restaurant area. The bartender just had a good convo with the people before us but he didnt seem interested in helping us and when i tried to start a conversion he blew that off as well and didnt check on us after so we just had one drink and left. It was a cool bar so its sad that we have no reason to go back there(we are local) but other than that it was a great experience.

Great location and very clean and spacious room with Illy coffee 😋Mmmmm

The staff made myself and Husband feel so very welcomed.The location and decor of the hotel well great, just a need to improve upon the shape of the elevators.

Thank-you so much for staying with us! The building itself is about 110 years old however we reopened as the Glass Light in December of 2019. Please come back and see us again!

Thank-you so much for your feedback. Our building was constructed in 1912 so adding a garage was not possible. We were able to work out an agreement with the city for the garage directly behind us. We wish we could have had a direct connection to the garage but that was not possible. We hope that you will visit us again.

We would like to apologize about the experience you had at the bar as it is not typical of the service that we provide. We hope that you will give us another chance once our bar and restaurant re opens! Once again, Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
