          I would stay here again in a heartbeat! It's a wonderfully kitchy hotel with unique decor. The service was spot on and the complimentary breakfast was much better than you get in a chain hotel. Plus they have Voss water!

          No there isn't parking at the hotel proper. There is a nice parking garage directly across the street that is free on weekends, and you can park on the street along the hotel.
