What it's like

The Bee comprises two historic buildings in the River District: 'Old Bee' and 'New Bee.' This boutique hotel honors its legacy by preserving the original features that made these buildings great. You may notice the original wood floors in the halls of Old Bee, the original spiral staircase from the press room to the editor's office, and the original newsboy figurine above the front entrance of New Bee. These historical elements blend with modern amenities to create a truly unique stay.

Eat and drink
