The hotel and restaurant staff are top notch! Don't stay here if you want an anonymous, bland hotel experience. The proprietors, front desk staff, and bar staff will remember you, greet you each time you make eye contact, and are always asking if there is anything they can do for you. Similarly loving attention has been paid to all the other details too, from the hand-painted ceiling in the Tap Room, to the eclectic-but-chic lobby decor and fireplace, to the fun decor and seating on the stairway landings, to the gleaming polish of the hardwood floors. The rooms are comfortable and livable, with similar careful touches - fridge, openable windows, plenty of plug-ins, cool bathtub, plenty of chairs and closet space (although not the walk-in closet that the website promises). The Tap House restaurant in the lobby is always hopping, and the clientele is a real blend of ages, locals doing "destination dining," out-of-towner hotel guests, families, singles, and couples of all sorts. Despite the live music at the bar, the rooms are plenty quiet with the windows closed (open windows = traffic noise). Without realizing, I tried to check in early (I'd been traveling since 3 am, so it felt like mid-afternoon to me). One of the proprietors at the front desk went to "check to see if the room was ready." When he returned 15 minutes later to report that it was, I realized that he had been preparing the room so that I could check in. Wow - what service! Downsides: there is not (yet) a functional workout room, and the housekeeping staff don't seem to know that towels on the floor means "I want a clean one, please." Nonetheless, I'd stay here again in a heartbeat - these guys are great and the room was exactly what I wanted. If only I had a third hand, I could say "three thumbs up!"
