Has a great look of historical hotel look from outside, but once you are in, the entire place reminds you more of a hostel then hotel. Location is very convenient and food served at its first floor restaurant is excellent, but the entire hotel definitely...More

Our room was nice and cool, no a/c was needed but that was in May, not July or August. Plenty of parking available in nearby garage, a bit of a walk, but not uncomfortable. Creative juggling I would recommend!
