There were not many other guests this time of year, making for a very peaceful refuge between meetings. The hotel is much larger than it first appears, with multiple levels and hidden courtyards. I missed visiting their cigar bar, though, my...

A wonderful location for exploring the Colonial District. Most sites are within walking distance as well as many restaurants. My room was comfortable and quiet. The room decor is elegantly minimalist with a beautiful bath with luxurious towels. Plenty of bottled water provided at no charge. The turndown service provided a little rug by the bed so your feet won't...

Attentive and friendly staff. Easy walking distance to main square with restaurants. Great outdoor courtyard for cocktails before dinner. Delicious light Continental breakfast served in "lobby " area if you don't feel like a full served breakfast. Most delicious coffee!
