The hotel was fine. The web site said it had recently been refurbished, but I did not see that; aspects of the room seemed outdated. The bed was not very comfortable. It is a spring mattress and I felt like I was going to roll into my husband when he got in bed. The room was clean and spacious.

The parking is the only down side to this hotel. It’s way to small for any midsize vehicle.

It was dirty and old and dingy. It looks like a very old hotel that they just updated some to make it look newer

The hotel was in the heart of WVU campus. Lots of one way streets and students. Hotel staff was wonderful. Beds are very comfortable. Great stay!

As others have stated the title Boutique is misleading. True. It's clean. It's modern. The design of the room and furnishings in the rooms are stark. For a place to stay it's good value. I like being in town and walking distance to a number of restaurants rather than being out on a highway. Free indoor parking is a bonus. "Breakfast included" is also misleading though there's fresh fruit, pre packaged muffins, and cereal bars with your do-it-yourself K-cup on every floor. This was actually convenient for me as I worked on via internet all morning - so a walk down the hall for coffee during breaks was alright. Easily received a 1½ hour late check out from the friendly staff. Internet speed was being upgraded. They should be done this month.

Stylish

Pros: Large room
Cons: Brighten up parking stairwell - leave dumpster alone after 11pm
Location: Great central location to uwv.
Stylish hotel, professional front desk. Did not care for fur headboard or the fact you have to walk down a narrow stairwell if you park in the garage-but then, parking is free. Nice breakfast bar, however, we were departing 6am and no hot water in Keurig for coffee on our floor - there was in the lobby though. After a very long day out we came back to the room to find only one bed had been made, too tired and late to call desk to have other bed made ! Friendly front desk, fair price for stay.

Have stayed at The Chestnut multiple times-love it

Pros: Great decor
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Great location in Morgantown. One block off of High Street where all of the restaurants/bars are located.
We love this hotel because it's clean, comfortable and 'cute' or 'hip' or whatever college kids say! Our daughter attends WVU so we have stayed here multiple times and have always had a good experience.
