Our home at the homeof the Blues!

  • 5 of 5

We only had overnight to spend this trip and the Hooker Hotel and John Magnusson couldn't have made it any better! We loved everything about the rooms and the location. John really gave us great tips on where to eat and what to do the one night we had in town. Couldn't have been better and we hope to come back for a longer stay! Thanks John!
