Nice hotel
Overall very nice but obviously an old hotel and the bathrooms were pretty small. I would stay there again

Mixed feelings
Parking is a major problem, and an excessive charge applied for valet-only option. On check-in it was a prepaid reservation but they tried to charge again. Quoted a credit card on the reservation that was not the one used and was in fact expired. Gave them another but pointed out that it was prepaid. The card they swiped turned out to be the wrong one for the reservation and the correct one then given. A $17 charge appears on both cards now. An extra $40 added for unknown reasons, though probably included the $32 parking and the $17 unknown. No food served and coffee ran out in the early morning. Stayed there because I had reservations at nearby supper club (Yoshi's). Will not stay there again, because the reservation for one night amounted to $259 prepaid, $49 added, and a wrong card charge of another $17. This is not a $300 hotel and is in a dubious neighborhood.

great staff & location, the details need refining
The hotel staff were great. Just a few drawbacks.. there's an additional 35$ a night parking fee, the water pressure in the shower was horrible.. exposed plumbing in closet area, dirty drop ceiling tiles that happen to be builder grade insulation panels. The maids only left one towel our second night, but a trip downstairs remedied the situation quickly. Once again the staff and location are great, but for the cost nicer hotels are available.
