I had a by difficult time finding this hotel. Note, the sign on the building is extremely small and hard to see. Once I called Jimmy met me on the curb and was as sweet as pie. The traffic is busy so be warned that you might have challenges if you have to turn around. I opted for self-park and somehow ended up having to take 3 different elevators to get to my room. If concierge Jimmy hadn't found me in the garage I might still be lost.
My room was on the 5th floor with a view of a wall and dirty cigars. I felt extremely closed in. When I asked for a different room above the wall I was moved three doors further down the same wall. Not sure where the communication failed. With that being said though the room was lovely. Spacious and sparkling clean I loved it. The bed was very comfortable and added touches such as the marble, classy comfortable chairs, and reading lights made a huge difference.
The location to Georgetown can't be beat. I enjoyed a lovely walk downtown where I found tons of fun places to eat and cute shops. I would definitely stay here again for location alone.
In short there are challenges. Finding the place is challenging, parking is confusing, 3 separate elevators is excessive, and being charged for parking and Internet is never appreciated. But I truly did enjoy my stay here. With the challenges in mind I would still come back again for more. I would also insist on being on a higher floor so I could actually have sunlight come through the windows.
