We had a superb experience at the Cup Cafe; our dinner was delicious - and the wait staff gracious and helpful. Visiting from the Pacific Northwest, it was a treat to sit outside on the patio in December. So excellent was our experience, we decided...More

Historic hotel in the heart of downtown stayed for a week but would recommend primarily for a one or two-night stay only unless you are a night owl. As others have noted, it is quite noisy with all the karaoke, DJs, and live music also...More

We are a little past the Club Congress scene but were looking for a late night cocktail. The long bar in the lobby worked just fine. Enjoyed Ben's High Noon ... a gin drink with strong grapefruit flavor. Quite yummy. One fellow had a draft...More

Our room was nice and cool, no a/c was needed but that was in May, not July or August. Plenty of parking available in nearby garage, a bit of a walk, but not uncomfortable. Creative juggling I would recommend!
