We've stayed here about 7 times in the past few years. we've always liked the rooms and price. we found the staff to be friendly and kind.. But it did happen once where the person at the front desk was not very good with customer service. but that was only once. over all I would recommend this hotel.

The walls are dirty and the painting is falling off. Bathroom is not clean and well kept. Shower is really bad. Housekeeping left dirty cups in the room and didn't replace the towels. Breakfast buffet is poor.

A budget hotel partially in a heritage building just steps from a subway station. The rooms are clean but spartan, the bed extremely comfortable. Free WiFi and breakfast. A little faded at the edges, though, and the hotel will be closing in 2015 when the site is redeveloped, so don't expect major improvements on decor. But as a reasonably priced... More

We chose this hotel for its great value and have been back two more times. We found all the staff to be friendly, kind and efficient and our rooms (all 3 times) very clean and functional. We love to see a beautiful old building saved and spruced up, its more interesting to stay in than the predictable ones. It feels... More

Stayed here for one night, it's central enough to walk everywhere. We loved the old elevator with gate and manual door! Room small, but excellent clean and up to date furnishings, bathroom, TVs, etc. continental breakfast is just that, what expected. Parking : They really do only have a few on site spots, but frankly for $17 they weren't much... More

The room was clean and renovated. Breakfast included bagels, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, and decent coffee with real cream. The staff was friendly and helpful, and indeed exceeded expectations when we arrived at 9 a.m. and were invited to have breakfast before we began sightseeing! There were two couples in our party, and they let us put all our... More

A bit of history surrounded by big city buildings. It is a older property that has been remodeled in to a hotel. Rooms were good but had very small bathrooms kind of like you would find in London. And the elevator was a small service type. If you can't do stairs you just know that it will take more time... More

Nice size rooms with refrigerator and microwave. Some rooms have been updated, but we stayed in one of the older rooms which had a little more space. The room was dated, but appeared clean. Breakfast in the morning was good. Desk staff was attentive and helpful. Location was a little far away from sites, but very convenient to the subway,... More

If you are looking for a luxury hotel with great views, do not stay at this hotel. However, if you like great customer service, updated rooms with a lovely bathroom and rain shower, a delicious, plentiful breakfast at no extra cost at a hotel within walking distance to downtown and subway access across the street........then this hotel will be a...
