I hesitated to write this review because I didn't think that I could do this hotel justice, and also, like others, because I wish that it would remain a secret of sorts. There's not much to be said that hasn't been written. It's a respite in a crazy, wonderful city. The people who work here are all, each and every one, lovely and helpful. It somehow manages to feel homey while not feeling bed and breakfast-y. The details from the front door down to the pillow on your bed are all thoughtful and beautiful. I would recommend anyone stay here, and I dream about being able to come back. I will add some of the pictures I took. We were on the top floor in a suite or junior suite? Whatever it was was perfect. We traveled in August, and had a glorious time.
