“This Little Hotel Certainly Tries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I didn't know what to expect when I arrived into this hotel at first. It received rave reviews but didn't look like a top notch hotel. I checked at 11:30 at night with a reservation and the room I was in was clean but faced a brick wall ten feet away and the carpet and bathroom could use some updates. But beyond that, everything was great. The staff was kind and helpful, the location was great, near Union Square. The breakfast was fantastic with an amazing view of the city. The bed was comfortable. What the hotel might come up short with in perks, it makes up for with its drops of love.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't have a view of a brick wall.

Excellent central location, beautiful and well maintained historic building, staff were fantastic and very helpful. Breakfast was brillaint. The Marine's veteran's association adds an interesting extra side to the hotel. Will definitely be returning.

Parking garage three door up. Nice older establishment with a decent restaurant. We enjoyed both a dinner and a breakfast here. Good staff wanting to make your stay enjoyable. Nothing fancy but a good room at a reasonable price.

Definitely a little bit different than your typical business hotel. This place has photos of marines all over the walls and some uniforms and other Marine memorabilia.
The bedroom was nice and big with a good work desk, flat screen tv, and fridge.
The bed was very comfortable. I was disappointed in the flickery fluorescent light for the vanity area and the shower/toilet room was small and cramped. You have to go in and close the door to access the shower.
The free breakfast was good and the view was great from the restaurant. Staff is very nice. Overall I recommend it.

Room Tip: room 312's window looks at a brick wall and a fire escape. Not so nice if you want a view from y...

Hotel was located only 3 blocks from Union Square and convenient to public transportation. The breakfast each day was awesome. We had a King size room that was spacious and very clean.
We had an amazing view from our room on the 5th floor. Each night they have a complimentary Happy Hour from 4 - 6 PM and they make awesome Martinis.

Stayed at the hotel in September for a wedding in the hotel. The hotel is not fancy but was comfortable. The staff were nice and accommodating. The breakfast was good and plentiful. The location was perfect. Would recommend if your just looking for a comfortable place to stay without all the fancy bells and whistles. The room we stayed in was a bit noisy in the morning due to consruction and trash pickup

My husband is in the Royal Air Force and I found this hotel searching around on TripAdvisor. The room was so reasonably priced as a serving military member compared to the other hotels in the area. When we got there, the staff was incredibly friendly. The room was huge and very clean, though we were looking out at a brick wall. They offer ice machines and mineral water machines on the floors meaning we didn't have to buy bottled water each day while we were out touring. The complimentary breakfast had so many choices that it was great for starting the day and who can complain about a 2 hour complimentary happy hour each day??? We ate at the restaurant one night and found the food to be delicious and well priced. The one complaint that I have is that the windows were like paper so we could hear every bit of street noise even though we were on the 7th floor. This was definitely problematic on Saturday night when the bars close at 1am. The noise outside was a nightmare! Definitely try to get a higher floor or maybe one that isn't on the main street! All in all, it was a really nice stay and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to choose one higher up and off the main street so you don't get all the street noise.
