I understand the location was newly renovated and you can tell—in a good way. Everything had a new appearance. The lobby was attractive and the rooms comfortable.
The bar/restaurant mentioned in the hotel's description is essentially part of the front lobby. An "open concept" design seems, to me an odd choice for a small hotel without a second, more intimate option. But I'm arguably nitpicking here.
The staff I interacted with were all a pleasure. Jenelle at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Surprisingly rare qualities in a postion that shouldn't be anything else. The bartender, Will I think, was a delight. I'd stay there again just to get more of this signature drink he made me.
My only real complaint was the location. Halfway between the downtown and airport may sound good in theory, in practice, it doesn't put the hotel near anything. And traffic can make going into downtown a 30 minute trip. Not ideal.
Pros: freshly renovated, friendly staff, good bar, comfortable rooms
Cons: unideal location
