On my first visit, I stayed in a corner alcove room which was extremely spacious and beautifully appointed. However, I was just a small bit disappointed that the room did not have one of... More

The hotel is beautiful, a converted warehouse, across bridge from Harley Davidson Museum, a 15 minute walk to the Historic Third Ward, a short drive, 15 minutes, to Miller baseball park. The Smythe restaurant is excellent. The hotel is so popular, there are weddings on the weekends, as when we were there. You cannot hear celebrating from downstairs, but Saturday... More

I also walked with my son to the art museum, but that was around 2 miles. The rooms are clean, large and comfortable. The extra space compared to most hotels meant... More
