Thanks for staying with us. We work hard to make our guests happy and appreciate your feedback!

This is an older hotel, but has most of the modern day comforts, including free Wi-Fi, good TV, and a kitchenette. The rooms are quiet and solid. The old original doors have valet pockets and real keys -- I'm so glad they never changed them!...More

Rooms were very interesting with a kitchenette and walk-in closet. A little bit musty and the window AC units were a bit loud, but the overall experience was very enjoyable. Definitely try out the restaurant downstairs! Staff was very nice.

Had our wedding party stay there. The rooms were cozy and our suite was big and comfortable. The staff was attentive and the hotel had loads of old world charm. Coctails int he bar were fantastic and we couldn't have wished for any more

You book the parking (alongside the hotel) when you check-in. They give you a pass that operates the boom. Wasn't driving, but if memory serves me it was $18 for 24 hours.
