There was an issue with parking for the first night and we had to park in the garage across the street, but it wasn’t much stress or problem. The hotel is stunning and the rooms are spacious and very clean.

Lovely lobby and rooms. Bathroom could use an update, but very clean and worked fine. Staff are all so helpful and friendly! They work very hard to help with any guests needs. The grab and go counter food was great every time and so were the lattes.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times in the last year and each stay has only gotten better. They have upgraded their lobby to include a small bar, coffee and eatery to replace the Starbucks next door, interesting over-sized games and tables with candles - unfortunately the large restaurant is gone... a shame, we loved the food! The rooms are neat and well appointed. We adore the vintage style of the Whitcomb, the abundance of mirrored wood walls and stylized furniture and look. There is a great breakfast/lunch place across the street (it gets busy!!) so make reservations. I was told they will be starting renovations to introduce themed rooms... interesting?!
