In some respects, the Ellis is a very run-of-the-mill hotel; in others, its "boutique" side shows—there's a complimentary wine tasting at 5:30pm daily, for example, and Molton Brown products in the bathrooms. The price is more than reasonable, and the location is convenient to many downtown attractions. It's also a historic property, having served as the Winecoff Hotel until it was destroyed by a fire in 1946, rebuilt to its former glory years decades later. Rooms are on the cozier side, but perfectly comfortable; same goes for the bathroom. For women traveling alone and concerned about safety, there's a "female-only" floor, oddly enough, with a keyed entry. There's no valet parking by the hotel itself, though it is provided through an outside vendor; self-parking is offered at a couple of nearby parking garages. The Ellis is one of only four hotels in the state to have received a national Green Seal for their sustainability practices. The icing on the cake: It's also pet-friendly.
