Maybe it's a case of my staying at too many boutique hotels. The room is nice, the hotel is clean, and the service was OK. I don't know why, but all I can say is that in the design and implementation of the hotel, someone went too far in the hipster department.
When you first walk in, there is no reception desk. It's a desk, with a parrot. Sounds cool and all, but when all you want to do is check in, and you have to walk around the back to get someone to help you, it leaves a bad first impression.
On the positive side, breakfast was really good and their coffee is terrific. Regardless of whatever diet you are on, try the grits.
