We stayed at this great boutique hotel, as we were in town for our son's baseball tournament. We were so glad we decided on this hotel instead of the typical "team hotel" that the organizer's of the event recommended. The location to Terry Park where the event was held couldn't have been better! We were a short 10 min drive away. Now this area of the hotel is considered a "transitional area" of the Old downtown river district. Driving there from the airport one understands why. Do Not let this detour you! This place is a hidden gem. So, after reading a few reviews we decided to give it a try. and glad we did.
This is a boutique hotel a modern decor in an old downtown building which is part of the charm of this area. Within a few blocks there are many bars, pubs, and restaurants. You can park your car and basically walk the area and find a great place to go. If you drive you will need to valet park your car but the price was reasonable. The service was always great from the minute we parked our car to checkout the staff really went out of their way to make you feel at home. Even though this is considered a boutique hotel it is actually part of the Holiday Inn group.
Our room was close to the top floor and was very comfortable. It had a great open feel with a kitchen and living area and a Master suite with a very large bathroom. The whole decor was hip and ultra modern we loved it! The space was perfect for the three of us. there were 2 large flat screen Tv's a great work space computer desk area and i pod docking spaces for our phones in both rooms. The kitchen had a mini fridge and a sink and a coffee pot. It was actually had enough space for a microwave and toaster which it lacked and also plenty of space for dishes, utensils etc.. which it did not have and I thought odd considering the great workspace. if I had to have a compliant I guess that would be it.
We did venture up to the bar and pool area on the top floor one night and it was very lively with many people enjoying the views and the great DJ they had that night the bar was very busy. The pool looked a little small but still looked to be well maintained and I'm sure during the Summer a welcome retreat from the Florida heat.
Downstairs outside the lobby there is an adjoining building with a few restaurants we tried the Japanese restaurant one night and it was very good glad we tried it. There are many great shops and easily accessible nearby restaurants and a supermarket not too faraway. If you are ever in this area for business or anything else don't overlook this great hotel.
