Visited this past weekend for a small family get together. The hotel is nice and the rooms are very comfortable. The service is great and it was nice to be able to walk around the area and not have drive everywhere.

This was our third stay in this property, so that should tell you a lot! The service, comfy beds, and wonderful location is amazing. The only downer is the parking. Just know that if you have a larger vehicle it will be a tight squeeze parking that vehicle.

This hotel is in an amazing location - there's an amazing square of shops, bars, and restaurants in quick walking distance.

My first time putting out money for a hotel. It was worth it. Excellent Service, comfortable bed, nice setup. The only downer is that the room's only window was leading to the lobby, and i wish they had room service.

This hotel is close to the main shopping and dining area of Decatur. The staff were nice and there is a fitness center and pool.
