"Love, just love the art galleries."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great location, art galleries are a major plus. Hotel lobby was under par for the rest of the property and cleanliness could have been better. The room was not all that impressive, but the staff was really nice. Smoking area outside could use seating and shade. Will go back for sure to finish the gallery tour.

22-Aug-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Aug 21 to Sun Aug 22 2021 at a $179.99 average nightly rate.
"Stars lost the sparkles."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Bring in different location of the same chain. This location is definitely the one that impressed me the least. Rooms are average, amenities and services are below average. Housekeeping was not existing. No fresh linens for multiple days. New towels received after asking for fresh ones and they ones delivered were with out with holes and "broken" edges. Not sure if COVID is to blame but right now this property lacks the charm and the quality of services of other locations. Restaurant and bar menu is limited and not creative.

Overall Score3.0/ 5
For the cost was not impress with the hotel.
