Thank you for your feedback. In order to better control our environment and the experience of our guests in a "college town" and as a hotel with an attached bar, we take the age of our guests very seriously. We welcome guests of all ages; however, we do ask that any guest under the age of 21 is accompanied by an adult over the age of 21.
