You can easily walk to all the wonderful shops and restaurants in the old historic part of town from here. We road the Katy Trail and stayed here our last night. The trail is just down the hill, as is the Lewis and Clark Boathouse and Nature Center and Frontier Park.
The building itself is great if you love staying in historic places. The dining area is decorated well and breakfast was delicious. If you are just looking for a modern hotel, this isn't it, but we liked the character of the place.
The only reason I didn't say GREAT location is the noise. It is on a busy corner and they don't hide that when you make the reservations, but the noise tapered off around 11 p.m. (Friday night) and we slept well - until the brewery restaurant across the street decided to power wash at 6:15 a.m. Surely, that doesn't happen all the time, though.
We stayed in room #5 - very cute, great bed/mattress/linens, a decent shower and antique marble sink in the bedroom. Bathroom wasn't fancy, but was fine. Coffee pot and fixings provided as well as a small flat screen tv and they give you access to the fridge and ice in the dining room.
Overall, very comfortable and charming (as long as you are aware of the noise and willing to overlook that - maybe earplugs?)
Additional note - Hendrick's BBQ two blocks up the street has terrific food.
