Positives: Fell in love online but in person the experience was just above tans beyond. Staff very friendly and approachable.
Negatives: The only one thing is the kitchen would be best if you had open until the hours mentioned online. Just because I traveled late and did not grab anything to eat until I got to hotel and seen kitchen closed. That was the only frowned face I have made.

Positives: The staff were very professional and kind.
Negatives: There was a wedding party that kept up up from 11pm-6am banging on walls, yelling, slamming doors etc. Called the front desk twice yet partying continued. No refrigerator or microwave in room, so had to throw out food we brought back to room. View was bad

Melissa Family with Teens August 23, 2020
Positives: The hotel is unique. It’s a mansion that is tucked away in the city, but while you’re there you don’t feel like it’s in the middle of a city.
Jordan Traveling as Couple August 7, 2020
Positives: The bathroom was exquisite
Negatives: The carpets in the room made it look and feel dumpy. Overpriced!!
