It was awesome, the room was gorgeous and the service was very nice! And the view was fantastic. Was disappointed that the bathroom was handicapped but it was still beautiful.

Fair4.0
Good for 1 night, not more than that
Nothing spectacular about this place. The valet and the front desk lady were both very friendly. I do believe the valet wither smoked in my car or on the way to pick my car up. The hotel could use some work. I felt like all the furniture and even the toilet were made for short people. The bathroom was very small and the sink was rammed up against the toilet. The plumbing sucked. By the end of my shower I was ankle deep in water. Cleanliness isn't a top priority either which is evidence in chipped glaze in the tub and the disgusting vent. I would not return to this hotel

Good6.0
Would have been 5 Stars
I loved the ambiance and look of this old hotel with character. Staff was AMAZING! 5 stars. Room was Exactly as it looked online with lots of pretty natural light. 5 Stars. The entire room was clean overall except the bedding which is kind of a big deal. There was a blood stain on the comforter and another yellow stain of sorts. I was really happy with my stay until I saw that because it's such a gross thing to find. Other than that the room was overall clean. There was also no fitted sheet. It was just a series of loose top sheets. I wasn't thrilled that check in was 3pm, seems kind of late considering check out is 12 and not 3 to match the check-in time. Also there was a hold of $100 on my Credit Card for possible incidentals ( I've never experienced that before I) which is still hanging on my card pending, I assume it will take awhile to be taken off the card since there was no reason they will need to keep it.

We stayed on the 15th floor and the hotel room was way too hot. Thermostat said 69, but it couldn’t be cooler than 78 degrees
