This hotel was definitely a nice boutique hotel. You feel like you are in an apartment, not a true hotel room. I only have 2 major critiques of the hotel 1.) there are no sheers on the blinds, meaning either completely open or dark. This plays into a factor when you have the windows open and want a touch of privacy, but could have been worse. 2.) there was no in room coffee maker. Because this place is in a residential area there was no good place to grab coffee and we couldn't justify paying $5.00 for a cup of coffee, so we just dealt. Overall we had a good experience and would stay here again. For the record, let me make also state that this hotel does not have air conditioning, but it was cool enough so it didn't matter. I would definitely stay at this place again in a heartbeat.
