We stopped here in a 20 block walk to see the hotel and have a drink. It is worth the stop even though cocktails are quite expensive

This hotel is lovely. The furniture, bathrooms (we took pictures), accents, location and especially the bar. Large comfortable sofas, live music and great bar tenders.
