6/10 Good

Comfortable and roomy junior suite, with huge bathroom. Quiet. A bit musty, with old furniture. Water was turned off after 10 pm for maintenance; came back on in wee hours. Lobby was lifeless. Downtown is empty after dark. Just not an appealing location, and valet parking is the only option. Helpful and sympathetic staff. I wish the hotel could draw more life to itself. The water shutoff was inconvenient and worrisome.

6/10 Good

The history, the decorations, everything was first class. The problem we had was checking in upon arrival. Expedia had not notified the Hotel before we got there, hence, the front desk did not have any record of our room.They just gave us a room.

2/10 Poor

This hotel has most unfortunately gone downhill in its service. It’s a beautiful hotel but the service from the inefficient valet, inattentive front desk and lazy housekeeping is sub par and definitely NOT 5 Star.
