We booked the Meriweather room for our first anniversary. Starting with the good aspects...the location can't be beat. We loved being right off the mall and having parking close by. Checking in is seamless, and the room itself was lovely. The bed was comfortable, the room was

"Poe is in the front so if you are wanting more privacy.. keep this in mind."
"Meriwether and Secretariat are the quieter rooms. The others face the mall and have more noise."
"Merriweather had balcony and faced the back--quieter than front facing Poe room."
"Meriwether (2nd) & Faulkner (3rd) are in back & overlook parking lot. Poe (2nd) & Secretariat (3rd) are in the front."
"Entry door is next to the Mudhouse coffe shop."
