Great hotel, sketchy area
I like this hotel's ambiance and decor, really do. However the first time I stayed here (august 2018) on the last day there was a burglary of one of the rooms. I had forgotten about that and booked it again a week ago. This time, I was awoken at midnight by frantic knocking on my door and someone asking if I had left two phones in the common area?? Anyways, I felt unsafe afterwards. Next morning I spoke to front desk and they let me know other people had reported something similar. So proposed solution: A) get a more attentive night manager or B) hire security staff at night. I will be taking my business elsewhere from now on.

I stayed in a suite and the walls were very thin. I could hear the neighbors t.v. clearly. Not a big deal, but if there was more than one person and they were conversing etc...could've have been an issue. Other than that, my stay was fine.

Don't stay on the first floor
We stayed on the first floor and there were people talking loud near the fireplace area until 1:00 am. And we checked in at 3:10 but still have to wait another 35 minutes for our room to be ready.

Cleanliness Issue. Found ants in Bed, Bathroom.
I will not be going back as it was really expensive and just not up to basic quality standards that you expect from a pricey stay. I found a weird smell when I entered my room, and found the room had ants crawling all over the place. There were ants even the on bed and pillows. After I complained they put me in another room, but it was just very hard to sleep in there after seeing that this hotel had an ant infestation.

I was really disappointed in the quality and cleanliness of this hotel. So much so that I couldn't get even stay there. This SHOULD NOT even be on the site. They are misleading customers with cheap wallpaper and when you get to the hotel it's actually a motel with dirty rooms and incompetent staff. Should've been $60 a night at most.
