A splurge for us because we were attending a show at Merrill Auditorium. Very nicely appointed room, but small. The bathroom was gorgeous and oversized by comparison to the room itself. Loved the fluffy warm bathrobes provided. Location is excellent, walking distance to many many shops and restaurants. There is a bar and restaurant in the hotel. The Union Restaurant itself was closed for renovations when we were there last week but there was still food service from the Inkwell Bar. We did note that reservations were desirable if you wanted dinner (and even for breakfast) but they were very accommodating since we were staying with them. It is a popular place and the bar was busy the nights we were there.

Fantastic hotel! So beautifully designed. An old newspaper building, so the name references that, as well as the decor. Well done! Excellent staff from valet, to check in to ideas of places to dine at. Great location. Rooms are top notch, everything well thought out for what you need. Exceeded our expectations! We will be back :)
