This hotel had it all. Great staff, loved the rooms, a step away to the free trolley and much more.
First, check-in was fast and efficient. The room was adorable, the bathroom large and love when it includes the mounted magnifying mirror, and the beds clean and comfy. The closet had 2 robes to use while there, along with a safe, and an umbrella. The A/C worked wonderful and I loved the stemless wine glasses that they put out with the ice bucket on a silver tray. The decor is boutique and funky. Loved it!!!
This is an animal friendly hotel and they have happy hour for pets with their owners. They also have a nice happy hour for guests in the lobby and you can also take your wine to the courtyard or your room.
Right across the street is a 24 hr. CVS and yes they sell wine and beer. The streets are lovely with all the brick buildings and sidewalks. They are tree lined with all the white lights at night all up King Street. Just lovely.
The free trolley starts at 11:30 am and runs to 10:15 pm. It has stops from the beginning to the end of King Street. There are trolley signs every couple of blocks. There is one across from the hotel just after CVS. It is about a fifteen minute walk to the beginning of King where the metro is located. The walk is lovely with many nice shops and bakeries.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It was just great.
