    Entirely unique - a quirky old building with charming detail, nice staff, super clean. It's the far end of Congress but I did walk downtown with no problem.

    Good location, great staff

    We stayed two nights in a king room on the third floor. Nice and large, windows that open, fridge, microwave and safe, flat screen TV. Bed was a bit firm and there was some traffic noise from Congress Street. Breakfast was good, free bottled water and cookies were a nice touch. Great BBQ restaurant a block away, good Thai restaurant almost next door.
