At first glance, this hotel did not look like much. But entering the lobby area, I was stunned by the vintage, Art Deco style. The lobby area, restaurant and bar were classic and reminiscent the 1920's era. At least that is what I thought. Our room, however, was ordinary and quite small. We had a standard queen size room and was not impressed with it. Tiny bathroom, tiny bathtub, but at least the bed was comfortable. As we did not spend much time in the room, so it met our needs. I found our room to be clean. No concerns with that.
The restaurant, the Envoy, was very good and reasonably priced. And, I am always happy when there is a Starbucks on site!!! I will add that the shuttle service was major plus. The shuttle took us and picked us up anywhere we wanted. Shuttle and hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
