In mid December 2011 we stayed at the Hotel Bijou over a weekend. A few days before we arrived the staff called me to explain that their website reservation system wasn't working right and that my quoted rate was too high. They cancelled the reservation and made a new one over the phone. The rate dropped from about $180 per night to about $80 a night. Seems that their site was adding a large parking garage fee even if, like us, we were not arriving by car.
The room was old fashioned and small but very nice. It had a nice even temperature and we could not hear our neighbors. Even though the room faced a busy street, the double pane windows kept out most of the street noise so the room was quiet. The continental breakfast, though not fancy, was good. In particular the coffee was good.
Even though the hotel is on the edge of a less desirable area of the city, we had no problems with street people. Yes there were a lot of panhandlers and religious "nuts' but they were not confrontational. We never felt uncomfortable or frightened even late at night.
We are already planning our next visit.
