  • 4,0.Fair

    The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The Milton Suite in which we stayed was very drafty and there were no additional blankets for use in the living area of the suite. We had an unfortunate encounter with a gentlemen working at the front desk not wanting to give us plates and silverware to take up to our room - our $500 per night room, he was pretty rude for no reason at all and because of that we will be taking our business elsewhere going forward.

    lean and classy but noisy

    The place was clean and had a great location in the heart of South Congress. The flip side of that is it's in a noisy location. We went to bed around 1am but it's still pretty noisy outside until 3ish. I guess that should be expected due to the location but it made for a rough night's sleep.

  • 6,0.Good

    It’s in a very good location, the Bouldin neighborhood. But the hotel has a dark ambience, dimly light areas and rooms. Wish the room had brighter lights: even with 3 lamps and a string light bulb it’s very dim and dark in the room

    S Congress COVID 19 in 2020

    This is a great property and location there are easy multiple restaurants across the street. COVID19 sucks the vibe at this hotel which is usually flourishing with people is dead. Pool area, The owner needs to get in the pool and look at the following from this level, the pool is starting to show its age, rusting trash cans, dirty pool furniture and the tile around the pool seemed a bit nasty, needs a deep clean. 301room great hotel room above the pool large room, What I do not understand is that an extra suite room that you pay for does not have a desk, working on a computer on a coffee desk hurst my back posture !
