The outside space and location.
For the price I expect there to be a minimum of working A/C and bathroom exhaust fan as well as replenishment of towels. The staff came quickly to fix the A/C and provide the towels when mentioned to them but this is expected. There are no amenities that make this a “high-end” or even boutique hotel. There isn’t a complimentary happy hour, no complimentary car service or nightly turn down service. The coffee in the morning is by the front door rather than an inviting set up in the library which could have made for a more enjoyable experience.
Great location and great hotel! This hotel is walking distance to a bunch of restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The hotel bar is great for some late night drinks. Clean rooms, helpful staff, overall a wonderful experience.
Horribly overpriced. Not in walking distance to anything we wanted to do. Menu was very limited and had nothing basic. Very “fancy “ food for a hotel that advertises it caters to Harley riders. Out of Bud Light.
Fun design details
Poor construction (tons of noise) , ambivalent staff, slow service in bar.
