Enjoyed my overnight stay in this historic hotel on the edge of the Old Market. It's on the National Register of Historic Places (Aquila Court Building). Check-in was fast and easy. I was assigned a corner king with three large windows and lots of light. Room was very clean and newly renovated. The bed was firm, yet still comfortable. (Those who prefer a soft pillow top mattress may be disappointed.) Flat screen cable TV had several true HD channels. In-room wireless internet was free and fast. All marble bathroom had Gilchrest & Soames toiletries. No tub, but shower stall was very roomy.
Amenities include free breakfast (6-10am), happy hour (beer & wine, 5:30-6:30pm), and milk and cookies (8-10pm). I only partook of the breakfast. I was disappointed because the scrambled eggs were dried out and rubbery and the french toast sticks were hard as a rock (at 8am). Had I arrived at 6am, I think everything would have been fresher.
The other problem I encountered was that neither computer in the library was working. I had a laptop, but I needed to print my boarding pass. It took two requests to get the computers running. The second technician, Cliff, did a great job and I was able to get my passes printed after about 15 minutes of waiting.
Would I stay again in this neighborhood? Definitely, as long as the price was competitive with other nearby hotels. If you are looking for a great alternative bar in the neighborhood, check out the Max. It's very upscale and friendly and just two blocks away.
