The banquet hall was cold and the acoustics were, at times, poor. The bathroom pipes for the shower made a loud noise throughout the duration of the shower in/from my room and other rooms. The walls to the room appear very thin as everything could be heard. However, the staff of the hotel were fantastic! The servers were very attentive... More

Our Engineering department works hard to maintain the original structure of our building and they will be made aware of the sounds you experienced.

Friendliest staff, spectacular lobby and bar/lounge, large rooms and super easy access to the convention center. Ballrooms were large and beautiful, interesting pathways and hallways around the hotel. Restaurants friendly, good food and service. Close to city attractions. Enjoyed my stay! Super comfy beds, too!

If you enjoy beautiful architecture from the past, this is a place with a lobby where you may simply sit and enjoy the view. Better yet, walk through the hallways of the entry and lobby levels and be taken back to another era. If you have the opportunity, also visit the executive club at the lobby level where each detail... More

This hotel is the benchmark for five star quality and service. The hotel a beautiful, imposing Art Deco style building, an eye catching landmark on the urban landscape. The interior reception area is stunning with a sweeping staircase to the reception desk, all spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and efficient. When I asked about the history of the hotel...

This hotel has a great downtown location. We visited for a NBA game. It was a few blocks from Bradley Center and almost the entire walk was covered. We used a skywalk from the hotel all the way to the Hyatt which is across from Bradley Center. It was 20 degrees so this was a great plus. Food and drinks... More

On the plus side. -- The staff is great. Well trained, very helpful, very nice. -- The lobby bar is a great space. During the day, not too busy, power in some of the tables.

Great hotel, with a great location. We were visiting town for a concert at The Riverside Theater. It was in walking distance from the hotel. Great bar located in the hotel, free breakfast (which was actually good breakfast) and free parking were some of the added bonuses.
