We stayed only one night on a saturday by calling on a Thursday ( otherwise a 3 night min). The staff was lovely, check in easy, and it is a cute, clean hotel. BUT if you are on the 1st floor you will not sleep!!! You can hear every word and you are very close to bar/ outdoor patio and library. They clearly know this is a problem and have added glass doors where you leave lobby to enter guestrooms, but it does little to mute the noise. There is no air conditioning, so we opened the window ( which faced an alley wall) -- more noise from the nearby outdoor patio reached us as well!
On another note, you must LOVE ( as in be obsessed) with dogs to stay here. Seriously. We have 2 dogs and love them dearly, but this is a hotel for the type of people who think of their dogs as their children. We had fun listening to jazz in the living room and talking to various dog owners ( everyone is very friendly in a dog community way) but would choose another hotel next time, even if we had not had the noise issue. It was just a little too over the top with the whole dog thing.
