We were extremely disappointed with our stay this past weekend. Upon check-in, we were greeted by a shoe-box sized room. I understand that with the older downtown hotels, room size varies considerably, however at a rate of $300 / night I at least expect a queen sized bed. The thermostat did not work and the heat never shut-off. In fact, I would estimate our average room temp at 85 for the stay. The shower / tub did not drain properly. The actual tub was knee high with water by the time I finished a 5 minute shower. The building is historic and the location is great, however based on our experience, this is lucky to be a 3 star hotel.
