My daughter and I stayed at the 1919 for 3 nights. We had the least expensive room that we pre-paid for months in advance to get the best value and was located on the 2nd floor. Our room had a queen-sized bed and was tiny - just enough room to walk around the sides of the bed and put our bags against the wall. The bathroom was large enough but wasn't exactly sound proof! The room was pretty yet minimal and we had a slight view of the harbor but our windows were really dirty. We didn't have too many issues with noise but we weren't there over a Friday or Saturday night. I highly recommend you bring earplugs.
The breakfast was very expensive, a buffet, lovely but not our cup of tea. We walked one block up to the 10-11 convenience store and bought a few bananas and donuts and liked that option better. We only ate in the restaurant once and didn't feel compelled to eat there again. Oddly, we weren't provided with drinking glasses in our room to take advantage of the wonderful tap water so we bought bottled water and then refilled it in the sink (but the sinks are elf sized so buy the small water bottles or you can't fit them under the spout).
The hotel felt safe, the staff was responsive, it was fairly modern but most importantly, it was in the best location and we could walk everywhere we wanted to be in a manner of minutes.
