Great staff and coffee bar

Jul 16th, 2019

Room is updated. Staff was courteous. Would be a great event or family reunion venue. The workout room was being updated so not perfect yet. The shuttle was great but we easily walked to the conference center and good food. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Unpretentious charm

Jul 7th, 2019

Quirky retro vibe in a great location. Great decor and beautiful property, although the hotel building itself is nothing special to look at. No views. You’re really just getting a comfortable, friendly overall feeling from staying here. Lots of perks including $20 to spend at the coffee shop and free admission to the foundry music venue. My kids loved it. Will definitely be back! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Poor service and lack of housekeeping

Jul 7th, 2019

Rooms are sub-par, average, somewhat of a musty smell. The comforter was stained. Moldy shower curtain, room amenities (i.e. soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner) were empty. Housekeeping never came to clean, went to front desk and was told they all went home due to the holiday. They offer a $10 daily spending credit to "go green" if you reuse towels/sheets. Tried to take advantage of this and never received the credit, even though I spent $ on-site for coffee, breakfast, etc. Front desk staff was nice, but completely unhelpful! Very young and didn't ask about my stay or seem concerned about the issues I encountered, even when I asked how to submit a complaint regarding my stay at check-out. Definitely won't stay here again.....Hotel Indigo is in same location and similar nightly cost. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Awesomely eclectic and cool hotel

Jul 1st, 2019

This is the coolest room I have even stayed in, and I travel a lot. It's historic, housed in the foundry that cast the double barrel cannon in town. The decor is fantastically mid-century: mint green rotary type phone, mustard yellow vinyl headboard, painted portraits disguising the storage/mini-fridge. A bulldog lamp greets you as you enter. The desk is topped with a retro-styled radio. The hotel services manual is in an old-style composition notebook binder. There are retro-styled notebooks on the table but be aware they are for purchase. The toiletries are luxury brand. The room keys are "student IDs" for local celebrities such as Michael Stipe. There are retro-styled Schwinn bikes you can borrow to ride about the neighborhood. The hotel offers a free shuttle to and from downtown (though downtown is about a 15 minute walk) so that you can enjoy the bars without worrying about how to get back. The onsite cafe offers really good coffee and breakfast biscuits, pastries and snacks. The Foundry bar/restaurant offers nightly live music, and entrance was included with your room. I booked the base rate without breakfast I thought but the front desk clerk just kept on handing over perks: 2 free King of Pops popsicles, a local brand of organic popsicles, 2 free breakfast items per person, spa discount. There are only two things I would improve on: there is a $10 parking fee. Just include it in the price of the room: with all the free perks, to pay separately for parking comes off as petty. And the cups in the bathroom are disposable. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Welcome Home

Jun 19th, 2019

We felt at home the moment we walked into the lobby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was just a typical hotel room and yet it was so much more. The old school eclectic decor made us feel like we had stepped back in time in the best kind of way. Our room was comfortable, clean, and well equipped. We will be back! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
