Okay - 2.9 out of 5

David Sun, 1 January 2017

Liked: Exterior and common area is gorgeous. Room was nice. We enjoyed the Cafe attached to the hotel. Had a nice breakfast and dinner there. If you're into the bar scene, this is right on 6th Street, which is the Mecca for music, bars, and pizza.
Disliked: Several areas of the hotel were not in the best shape. Cracks in the ceiling. Some areas of the hotel smelled of water damage (not referencing the horse/cow musk in the bar area as I recognize that is purposeful). Was advertised as having complimentary valet, but was actually 40 bucks a day. Advertised as pet friendly and not told until time of check-in that they come with a non-refundable 75 a pet deposit. Everything in the room is overpriced ($6.00 for water and most snacks).

Disappointing - 2.1 out of 5

Anonymous Mon, 26 December 2016

Liked: Lobby and bar area very nice, nicely decorated for christmas and the lobby smelled like sandalwood, nice touch.
Disliked: unfortunately, there was a terrible odor in the room which seemed to be most localized to one area. I hate to say it but it smelled like someone died in the room and the body was discovered two hot, humid days later. I work in the medical field and I'm familiar with the smell of a cadaver and this was it. for some reason, the air in the room was very moist and the ceiling fan was going when we arrived. not sure what happened in there before we got there. it was pretty awful.

Roger Wed, 21 December 2016

Liked: My husband and I loved the comfortable bed and linens. Slept awesome. Staff was extremely accommodating-upgraded our room. Beautiful well-appointed historic hotel. Classic violin music in background. Spectacular Christmas tree. Great downtown location. Would definitely stay there again.
Disliked: There was an indentation/hole about a foot in diameter near the foot of the bed under the bedroom rug that sunk in when stepped on. No big deal-we just stayed away from that area. And since we were given an upgrade, we certainly were not about to complain :)


Good - 3.75 out of 5

Liked: The hotel was beautiful the room was very clean.
Disliked: For the money I paid for a suit I was not comfortable. The room was right next to the elevator and so it was loud all night. Room service took over an hour.
