So spent one night in this lovely property. Was on the 16th floor King Club room. Bathroom spacious and beautifully appointed. TV also in Bathroom. Nice wood floors and updated room with flat screen TV. Club rooms have night snacks and free drinks with breakfast the next morning of fruits, cereals, bagels, danishes and eggs with potatoes.

If you want true Southern charm and outstanding service, this is the place. The rooftop bar is breathtaking. Beautiful, very helpful and friendly staff. I can't wait to go again. Very Comfortable bedding!

The building itself has a great historic feel yet the rooms have modern decor. The bathroom was spacious and a great, strong pressure shower which is relaxing. The rooms are on the smaller side but to be expected in an older building. Well worth the $120 a night we paid for a last minute booking!

Enjoyed our stay here. Toilet had a bad flapper and maintenance fixed it within 15 minutes. Valet parking had my truck waiting for me in day of departure. Downtown and within walking distance of historical places and restaurants. Would stay here again. Tip: upgrade to Club room. Well worth it.

I've stayed here on business many times and had great experiences. It is clean and modern but also quirky--it used to be a bank. The Vault is now a bar. The rooms are lovely, and the staff has always been courteous to me. I really enjoy staying at this hotel.

This hotel is well over a hundred years old and was originally a bank! The original bank vault is the hotel bar...quite cool! The only downside was the size of the rooms, but still perfect for couples. Would totally stay there again.

I love hotels that maintain a retro spirit - this one does just that. The lobby has the feel of an older, classy hotel. It was originally a bank (not sure when exactly it was built, but feel like 1930s-40s), so it has a beautiful tile floor, and an old bank vault that is actually now in use as a... More

This is a very nice hotel, it has a lot of the original building items to it. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They have a very nice rooftop bar, it was raining, we couldn't enjoy it. We went to the Vault for a drink that was another very nice bar.
