Overview

Professional staff, central location and Mediterranean-style cuisine
Several recent guests heard street noise from within some of the guest rooms

From the on-site spa to the soaker tubs, sauna, and herb tea, this locally owned boutique hotel, without actually saying so, caters beautifully to the female traveler—though the attention to detail, hop-to-it staff, and central location won't be lost on men either.

A major makeover in 2013 cooled down what was a slightly fussy traditional decor, and left the rooms shimmering in elegant silver, smoke, and pearl.
