It did not bother us a bit as we were there to see the sights. This place is friendly, warm and fun. It offers Happy Hour every... More

I stayed 6 days for a business trip and wanted a smallish boutique hotel with good value for money. The hotel provides clean, big and quiet rooms, an OK complimentary breakfast, really nice cheese and wine every afternoon and free WiFi. What makes it stand out though is the amazing staff, super friendly, personal and really go beyond every expectation... More

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, in expensive option in the city and found it at the Inn. It was very quiet, the room was clean with just the right amount of style that didn't make us feel like we were staying at a chain. The staff was friendly, especially Omar! We will be back.

Very friendly, comfortable stay just steps from Union Square. Most rooms do not have a view but are extremely quiet. Wonderful breakfast, wine in the evening, freshly baked cookies, fast wifi. What more could you ask? I definitely plan to return.

Have stayed at the Inn on a number of occasions. It is always a delight. The staff are all so friendly and wonderful. You are greeted and they remember you from previous visits. Our room was spacious and very comfortable.The breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese are just an added perk for an already delightful stay
