    Proximity to restaurants/bars.froendly service - good room service.

    Beds didn’t have real comforters and mattress was a little hard. Walls are thin and you can hea people in the halls - but it’s old so expected.

    Good for a swim

    Fairly nice place. Could use some updating as far as room and bathrooms in room. Staff was very attentive and helpful. We did enjoy the pool but it was a bit crowded due to it having a private party of non hotel guests.

    Dated room and bathrooms.

    I loved everything about this hotel. I felt like I stepped back in time the minute I walked in. The staff was super friendly and very attentive!

    If you're looking for a quiet place to crash for a business trip, this probably isn't the place for you. It's a pretty hip place so people in their 20's and 30's love it. And with that being said it's a party hotel. Which I thought was great but don't go in expecting to get any solid sleep.

    Loved the retro!

    It has a great authentic retro look and the lobby and cafe (good food) were great places to hang out. Staff was friendly.

    The walls were thin and there was a noisy family in the room next door. However, the staff spoke to them and they quieted down so sleeping was not a problem.
