Great location! Close to King St shopping. I didn't like the parking situation. Too expensive!

My room was very pleasant, quiet and clean. I enjoyed the pool and the staff was friendly and answered all of my questions. They were helpful with directions to the bus system and getting around town. Breakfast was GREAT ! The Chef was excellent at making omelettes and eggs Benedict. The location was only two blocks away from the Visitor Center and many great restaurants on King St. The downtown area was a 15 minuet, free bus ride. I thought that was reasonable because the Hotels right downtown were a lot more expensive. The neighbor hood was a bit sketchy at night because there is a gas station right across the street that seemed to attract some interesting characters and I was traveling alone, but no one bothered me. Folks were usually friendly and I saw police and valets outside of the hotel most evenings. I used the free bus for every trip and meet some friendly local people. It's only limits are later at night. I had a great time on my trip and would stay there again.

Great location and very clean!

Location: This location is great for Upper King shops and the trendy shops in Cannonborough. It's also a walkable distance for all major tourist attractions.
Our stay was a fantastic experience. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful. The bed was a little on the firm side and the pillows were delightful! The laundry room came in handy and affordable. The valet parking was a useful amenity as well.
