  • My wife and I have stayed here 8 to 10 times in the last 10 years and it’s always a great experience. We love Proof, the cutting edge art, the design of the hotel, its location, the room amenities...

  • If you have kids, stick to the left or the right and they will love it. If you go straight, there is some art with nudity in it…so plan accordingly.

  • We had an incredible time at this hotel. My daughter and I spent an entire week there and loved it. The staff was super friendly and exceptionally accommodating. The rooms were very cozy, the beds were extra comfy, the bathrooms were clean and had everything we needed (my daughter disagrees with me, but I think the lighting could be a bit brighter in the bathrooms). That is my only negative.
  • I had such a wonderful stay here! From the kind valets that greeted us outside, our quick and friendly check-in with Emily, our room, dinner, and everything in-between! Our room (Luxury King) was very clean and spacious. Comfortable beds and great amenities. Our dinner at Proof was delicious and our server Austin was so sweet and knowledgeable. We had waters delivered by the sweetest night auditor as well! Just a flawless stay and wonderful location!
  • Truly felt like a home away from home. Thoughtful, friendly and pleasant staff. Arthur, the valet was awesome for service but also as a local sharing his knowledge to an out of towner. Front desk was prompt and courteous. The aesthetic overall was amazing. Proof on Main was a treat to dine in as well. Y'all know how to spoil a guest! Thank you again!
  • If you like, art stay here. If you value a goodnight sleep, book elsewhere! Two out of three nights we stayed there the had events in the gallery with live bands and they played till 11 PM and the noise reverberates through the hotel, we were on the top floor and could hear the band very well. Unfortunately we had to get up at 6 AM. Nice hotel, nice rooms but if they have an event scheduled with a band sleeping can be challenging.
  • We have visited 21c museum in the past and loved it so much we hit it again this trip. Art by nature is extremely subjective, that caveat in place our group of three thought the exhibits from our last visit were more powerful. This group seemed more amateur and overreaching in their messaging vs the power of the art itself. I still give 4 stars because you should check it out every few months to see what's next.
