Beautiful and historic, but not as nice as it probably once was. A bit run down, I'd say.
Some advice: make sure you get every single thing you need out of your car before handing it over to the rather impatient valets at the door, because they apparently park quite a ways away, and will expect a tip each time you have to send them to run to go fetch something out of it.
Also, don't get a drink or food in the bar unless you're prepared to overpay. It's nothing spectacular and it is PRICEY. A lite beer and a shot of Jack was $11.67. I have the receipt before me now.
As I walked through the front door, my hands and arms were absolutely full of luggage and my hat was on my head. As the little doorkeep pulls the door open he says "No hats in the public areas of the club, sir." I like a no-hat-inside policy, but a bit of judgment may be called for.
Also, no hot water from the tap. I could get it out of the shower, no problem (albeit intermittently), but the tap was a trickle of cool water. Shaving took a bit of a try.
Last thing: temperature control in the room was mostly for show. It was set to "sauna."
All that said:
The help was generally friendly, the location is ideal for downtown business and conventions and is within walking distance of more reasonably-priced eating.
I give the place a high c-plus or low b-minus.
