Loved the old class with a touch of modern. Breakfast was a block away, and small amount of parking. But if you love the elegance of 1800's architecture; then this is a definite yes!
The room was great, and the history and character were well preserved through the restoration. The hotel will be even better when the surrounding construction is finished. No in house breakfast, but they offered discounts and complimentary breakfast at the Ruby Hotel, less than a block away.

Large rooms, comfy beds, right across the street from the fabulous Fox theater and an historical building to boot. Being only three floors high, there is a bit of street noise heard in the rooms. Nothing the hotel can do about it.
Picked the Montvale for it's location and price, was very pleased with the quality of our room. I would say adult only simply because of it's location to bars (they're good bars though) and lack of breakfast options in the immediate vicinity. But the Satellite Diner and Sante are only short walk away. We also discovered that Post Street Ale House serves breakfast, which was awesome. The Montvale nor Hotel Ruby are really set up to serve a proper breakfast, props on the Thomas Hammer Coffee though. Luckily there are food options downtown. Post Street Ale House serves awesome breakfast nachos and Sante is a personal favorite for breakfast.
Nice staff. Easy parking situation. Comfortable. Clean. A little loud. Hotel is very close to the freeway. A/C was SUPER loud even on the "low" setting - sounded like a jet taking off.
Comfortable and clean room, staff was very friendly and helpful. Facility in process of remodel. In the process of remodeling so not all amenities as available.
The hotel was clean and located near downtown. There is a restaurant and pool that makes the hotel inclusive. The size of the room and bathroom were smaller than my personal preference.
It is close the the freeway and downtown. The staff were nice and pleasant, but it takes away a lot when they are smoking outside the lobby. It is run down, the bed cover was patched, there were stains in the ceiling tiles. One of the elevators did not work. If your room is on the freeway side of the hotel it is noisy because the windows don't seal well. Parking is even though it is free, is limited, We literally had the last spot beside the garbage bins. The continetal breakfast looked pretty good, but the eggs were cold, there were not sausages or waffles left. It just seems that it was not monitored well, so items were not replenished in a timely manner. This was a last minute choice for us of what was left. We will probably not stay here again.
The staff was very nice. The breakfast was slow which it shouldn't be. The staff was great. The cooks for breakfast need to speed it up a bit. I don't consider breakfast a "dining experience" like I do at night. Too many things to go do
I love the historical elements of this hotel. The rooms are large, elegant and quieter than the newer Davenport Tower across the street. The staff are friendly and upbeat. The special touches include a nightly turndown with peanut brittle candy. The only thing I don't care for about this facility is that the atrium area of the main floor always feels dark. There is a lot of beautiful dark wood, andiIt is true to the original era I suppose, but when I took my book downstairs to read, despite the sunny day, the room was too dark to read in. It's such a beautiful room, I always want to turn the lights up a but brighter.
We stayed in the davenport towers and it was great. This was very short notice and everything from the valet to the room to the dining was first rate. I'm not sure why its not rated as a five star. This was the best value I've ever had in a hotel stay. Can't think of a thing
I liked the all around excellent service from the valet parking to the turn down service.
Fantastic, historic hotel that is beautifully decorated.
