    Nice...but needs some work.
    Relatively nice place. Needs some work, not updating but just a bit too worn in spots, with bunged up walls and woodwork. Other woodwork, in lobby and public areas, was in great condition. Noisy in the room, from 9 to 11PM period. Appears insulation between rooms is below par. Tiles in bathroom had an 80's vibe and next remodel would do well to use tile from the period of the building, which is very much in style and available these days. Furniture, at least in our room was badly damaged, scratched, watermarked, and scarred up. Far more shabby chic than antiques. That said, the room was spacious & the price was good and the included breakfast had some nice choice of fruit and breads...and a buffet of cooked goods. It was in a formal room, with table cloths, goblets, heavy silverware silverware, china type dishes, classy wingback chairs........nice setting for a surprisingly elegant breakfast! The charming historical feeling exceeded the spots that were not up to par, and the price was below many of the chain options in town. Would stay there again if driving through... If you love slick and modern, likely there are other places in town you would like better. Quite enjoyable for us, but would love to see it properly restored, which would require a good sized budget, they may not be able to generate.
