The room itself is great but the check in process is very specific to the hotel. I would suggest calling pre-arrival to confirm. Thanks, Bruce

Quiet and comfortable space. Warning that there is quiet a stair climb for the less agile and older customers. Generally very happy, but someone's food was left in the frig.

Although I never got a confirmation email telling me how to check in, John was able to help me. He had answered my question about not receiving an email confirmation 24hrs prior, and also walked me through step by step on how to check in! The room was lovely and I celebrated my year anniversary with my girlfriend lovely. Cute little room!

It is a different experience. Glad I read reviews ahead of time. Steep staircase getting to room, no tv and no place to set bags would keep me from coming back. Bed was comfy and location was great. Lots of restaurants and bars in the area and so it was a nice room at a good rate. Unfortunately we had lots of other guests that were very loud so it did not end up being the relaxation evening we planned for.
