I like this hotel very much. Tiny lobby, small rooms, but charming and clean. Comfortable bed and good shower (minuscule sink). Excellent service. Little luxuries like European-style continental breakfast, all-day cappuccino maker, wine & cheese reception in the afternoon. I prepaid through Hotels.com. However, when I checked out, i was told there was a $12/day "service charge" for all those little luxuries. Front Desk staff told me I'd have to go back to Hotels.com to arrange for a refund. Left quite a bad taste in my mouth as I left. Not sure if I'll go back. There's nothing worse than hidden fees. For $350/night, you'd think they could spot me a cup of cappuccino each night.
