Good Hotel in a Convenient Area to State Street
It's a decent hotel in a very convenient location right off State Street. They have a neat comfortable communal balcony patio that looks out towards mountains, and I noticed heaters so it's usable even in winter. We attended a Friday night show at the Lobero Theater which is about a 10 min walk up State Street, so very convenient. It's a historic building so rooms are understandably not huge, but was certainly good enough. Real convenient Valet parking right in front. Our room was 2nd floor on Haley street, so it was a little bit noisy on a Friday night. The street lights are right at that level, so curtains definitely need to be closed at night. Was a little surprised at how pricey it was, but it was a Friday night and DTSB can be pricey! Would definitely stay there again, but first would look around for better pricing.

Friendly staff, great location and cozy room! We had a short visit with our small dog but would have loved to have stayed longer. It’s in a great location and breakfast was delicious. We will stay here again!
