“Lovely boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a wedding and absolutely loved it! We are both experienced travelers and we felt like we were back in Europe! The building had history and charm and was absolutely beautiful!
We spent a lot of time outside the hotel for the wedding so we didn't get to experience the restaurant, but the staff was very friendly!
We also noticed that the area was very quiet and although we found a great bar, there wasn't too much else going on (which might be a plus for some people).

A boutique hotel, like a visit to Paris.

Love the design of the exterior and the look of the interior with some of its antiques. The room was fine, other than the feel of time travel, it is a clean, neat comfortable space.

The staff is helpful and polite. This is not like a Hampton Inn so if that is your preference stay away, but if you like and appreciate the value of older times stay here.

I like a "boutiquie" hotel and this was just that. The antiques and unique atmosphere was a nice distraction from the sameness that we have come to accept with the chain hotels. There are few amenities but the hotel staff is very kind and helpful. I felt like I was in Europe. As long as you are self sufficient you are in very good shape here. I agree with the previous review about the maintenance as our bathroom floor tiles were cracked but I chalked it up to "character".

A very different hotel. Dated back early 1900 's very clean and well kept. Very quiet for good night sleep. Me and my husband walk around to restaurants at night with out a car. Visit dorado resturant . Excellent spanish food. We only stayed for two nights . At night we would leave the windows open . If you want something different. This is it . Friendly staff.....

My wife and I love funky hotels and the St Michel meets that criteria, but it's on the edge of too funky from a maintenence persective. The tub was rusty in 3 places. The bed was small - a full size, not even a queen. AC is just so-so. Curtains don't darken the room much at all.

On the plus side, the staff is GREAT. The front desk is mostly'manned' by grandmothers, all very nice. They put ice in the room every day. Hand operated elevator is fun. Location is excellent. We got back later ever night so I just parked on the curb right out front then fed the meter at 9 am. Might stay there again.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights the beginning of May. Our room and bathroom were very clean. The beds were comfortable. We loved the antiques that were all over the hotel including the original Otis elevator that must be operated by the staff. Our room was at the front of the hotel and even though we were downtown and on a fairly busy street the noise from outside was minimal. We were within walking distance of a number of nice restaurants and the parking garage was only half a block away. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will be back.
