A faded gem
There were a lot of shenanigans with the booking and check in process, including the fact that I had to be moved because they didn't give me the type of room I had asked and paid for. Food was ok. Service was friendly. But the hotel needs a makeover and deep clean badly - seems like it's well past its prime.
