Our stay at the Attwater was wonderful - we requested an earlier check-in time, but due to the extremely short staffed nature of the world, we were not able to check in until 4 (check-in time). I spoke with the staff working at the desk, and they could not have been kinder and more apologetic for the inconvenience. And they weren't even late, it was us being the pains to check-in early!! :) enjoyed some time in the lobby looking at some great coffee table books, and enjoyed the snacks/water they have out. The one thing I especially loved about this hotel is the 2 Adirondacks that they have outside of one of the buildings, that you can sit out and enjoy some fresh air at. I really couldn't recommend the hotel any more, special thanks to the incredible staff for working so hard and being SO kind to us!

Room Tip: All rooms were quiet! I preferred first floor as there was no elevator. Really did not hear any...

This hotel is great! The staff is so welcoming, friendly and helpful. It’s extremely clean and they take the COVID restrictions very seriously. The inside is modern and new and the bed is so comfortable! I would 100% recommend this place to a friend.

The good: - nice staff welcomed us - the room decor was cute - accessible to some restaurants The bad: - room was cluttered, constricting and uncomfortable - shower stall was tiny - small bathroom with no space for makeup or toiletries - we heard every step that the people above took, and every conversation they had - breakfast was basically carbs - steps to our room were too steep - nobody helped take luggage to the room - staff leaves in the evening In summary: This hotel ruined our stay in this pretty city. It runs like a bad B&B, not like a hotel. We should have stayed elsewhere.

Hi 421marc, While it left our team smiling reading that you enjoyed our overall hospitality, décor, and location, we’re sorry other aspects of your stay didn’t meet your standards. In reading your notes, it sounds like most shortcomings could have been remedied by staying in a room that better fit your needs. To that end, know that our property features several room styles, many of which are spacious, open, and perhaps more in line with your tastes. We’d recommend exploring our King or Lark Suites. If you do us the honor of giving us another chance to impress and need an assist booking the perfect space, know that we’re here to lend a hand. Take care!
