Eva's Escape at the Gardenia Inn Hotel Review: Formerly known as the Gardenia Inn, this relaxing, romantic gem was renamed Eva's Escape in honor of Eva Mae Green Williams, the Alabama-born matriarch of the family that now carries on her tradition of Southern grace and hospitality. Built in 1905, the Greek revival-style home features five cozy king or queen rooms: Gardenia, Bluebonnet, Magnolia, Lavender and Desert Blossom. Each comes with a private bath (some with claw-foot tubs) and a warm, welcoming mix of old and new style and amenities, including antique furnishings, Turkish cotton robes, MP3 docking stations and free high-speed Internet access and Netflix. A full breakfast is served in the dining room, with a featured daily hot entrée such as roasted vegetable frittata or "family secret" waffles. Afternoons bring refreshing beverages and sweet treats. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available with advance notice. The gazebo, lawns and porch are lovely settings for weddings and special events (the owner is a former event planner), and the River Walk is just two blocks away. Within a three-block radius guests will find some of the area's favorite restaurants: Feast, Rosario's, Azuca, The Liberty Bar, La Foccacia and more.
