Business trip in the city
The hotel is starting to show signs of aging - peeling wallpaper, etc. we also struggled to get housekeeping to respond to our request for towels. Still a lovely historic hotel in an incredible location, but hoping they invest in some upkeep soon.

Old-school glamour
I loved the Art Deco glamour of this building—I could have sat in the lobby and people-watched for hours! This hotel is just stunning! My family did a photo shoot here too! The best breakfast I’ve ever had in a hotel too.

So-So
Historic hotel for sure. Was there for a solo relaxing weekend only to find it overrun with a conference. I couldn't get near the lobby to enjoy that atmosphere, couldn't get near the bars or the restaurants. Plus on check-in, my room wasn't ready and I was "upgraded" to a business suite--at an extra cost. Hidden fees--wifi is NOT free, only in the lobby which, remember, I couldn't get to use because of the crowds. No free amenities at all. Room OK but bathroom quite quite small. And bring an extension cord or something because there are few outlets because of the age of the hotel. Not quite up to its reputation.
