We have been to the StoneFort Inn before when it was strictly a bed and breakfast and had all the downstairs as pretty much a quiet get away. So when we checked in and saw that the property had been transformed into an ultra modern yet historic restaurant on the first floor known as TerraMae Appalachian Bistro, we were hesitant at first. However, our hesitations were quickly transformed as we realized that the charm had not been lost at all. Yes, the pool table is gone, but what has given way is a really great place to eat and drink without having to venture out into the city. Or conversely, as we did, we started at their bar one night, and then went out to eat. The other nights, we stayed in after a long day out, and were completely amazed at the service, hospitality and food choices which were spectacular. Most of the sleeping rooms have been renovated as well. I have read about the noise complaints from other TA reviewers, and all I can say is that---this is an urban downtown Inn--what do you expect? It was not overwhelming and it never really bothered us. We travel with earphones and play white noise if we need to, but we really didn't need to. The staff at the front desk was professional but not too over the top professional and very accommodating. All in all, we were impressed and pleased. The weekday breakfasts were quite good, nothing off the charts, but decent. We hear the weekend breakfasts are quite good, but we have not been there on a weekend yet, but we will be back! Highly recommended--and oh yeah, the parking---not a hassle at all, very convenient, secured, locked gated fencing across the street. I am amazed at that people complain about on TA! Now, if you are looking for a parking garage, and all the big hotel "normalities", stay down the street at the staid Marriott. One last thing--the prices--I think they are under pricing this place. Our weekday queen room was $135. It was well worth $150 or more, but I am glad it is priced so well!
