Back in time You go...
Amazing. The beauty was breathtaking. Amazing place, walking distance to everything. Food left something to be desired. My girl was not to impressed with her ordered breakfast and the $14 breakfast buffet was worth maybe $4.

Water leaking
I like the look of the hotel since the building is very old. It's charming, however it's very loud. You can hear everything. I also had water leaking (at one point raining out) from the vent in the bathroom ceiling. It was raining all over the toilet, floor and some of my items. I called the front desk to tell them and they said they'd send maintenance right up. They never came. When I mentioned it again the next morning at check out, they apologized and offered to pay for breakfast but I had already ate. It would have been nice to receive a portion of my money back.

Great location, lovely room (clean and nicely decorated but getting a little dated) and nice breakfast buffet. Suite with “kitchenette- loved the frig, but otherwise totally unequipted. Nice hotel bar. Would have loved the option of sitting in the courtyard for breakfast. Easy walk to convention center.

Very Good8.0
Would stay again, even with the bum AC
We loved our stay. Our room, room 241, was clean and spacious with an incredibly comfortable bed. The shower head and tub were excellent too. Our only complaint was that the air conditioning doesn’t seem to work except in fits and starts. Above the thermostat is a placard (so this is obv not a new issue) saying if it wasn’t working, turn it off for five minutes and back on. We’d have to do this every time we came into the room, during the middle of the night, etc. the A/C would just decide it was done, and we’d wake up to a muggy uncomfortable room or come back after a long day to the same. Other than that (repeated) issue with the A/C we were very happy with our stay!
