We stayed here for the 1st leg of our honeymoon, as my husband is a big American Politics buff. There was a bit of a rough start to our stay but after that smooth sailing.
Upon arriving at the hotel (after a 15 hour flight) our room wasn't ready (we did let the hotel know we would be arriving in the morning). They wanted to upgrade us to a better room but that room wasn't ready until almost 6 hours later - this was disappointing) So we ended up leaving our bags with the hotel to explore. Later when we returned our bags where still in the lobby, this was very odd as we thought they would have been moved to a secure storage room.
Our room was on the 7th floor and was lovely.
Later that evening a welcome letter, dates, a dessert and a large bottle of water (They may have thought we were to young for alcohol) to kick off our honeymoon stay.
After that 1st day our hotel stay was great.
Great location, friendly staff, nice variety of places to eat all around the area.
Rooms are large/clean (Furniture is pretty dated but it goes with the historic theme of the location)
Complimentary bottled water and wifi
Large bathroom (toilet isn't separate, some hotels have a separate room in the bathroom)
Large cupboards to store clothing.
Hotel staff were very helpful (sorted out a rent-a-car for our drive to New York)
Super comfortable beds
Only 1 bath robe in the bathroom - thought this was odd as they knew we were going to be 2.
Rooms service is crazy expensive.
