Beautiful historic hotel. Front desk personnel are not service oriented and welcoming. Starbuck's closes at 11am. There are a number of lovely properties downtown which would be better choices. Downtown area has many restuarants including the convention center. Easy access to major highways. A short distance to beautiful Plaza neighborhood.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of the hotel. I am sorry there were some issues you encountered. I understand you actually did not stay at the hotel, but I am sure if you did you would have had a great stay. As you can see by our reviews we overwhelmingly provide our guests with a wonderful experience. I am sorry you did not get a chance to see this first hand.

We stayed here on a business trip. This hotel is just beautiful. The building is old, but wonderfully kept. It is clean and they pay attention to detail. The staff was very friendly, I don't think I passed a single staff member in the hall that didn't stop to say "hello" and ask me how my day was going. The rooms were spacious and the bathrooms were large and updated. We had a business meeting in the "aztec room". It was wonderful as well. The location was great, within walking distance to the bars, restaurants & nightlife. We really had a great time. Only 15 minutes from the airport. Would certainly stay here again.

What a kind review. Thank you. I am especially pleased you pointed out how friendly the associates were during your visit. The hotel is a wonderful building, but the team is what really sets apart from other hotels in the area. We certainly hope to see you again in the future!

great service, comfortable beds, check fast and friendly, convenient location, the only area that needs to be considered is the exercise room is quite small and you may not get in your early morning workout

The hotel was ok. The staff were OK. Nothing really stood out to me except the very dated appearance and feel of the property. You can do historical and not get stuck, but this properly just seemed "old"

Thanks for the review. As noted the property is very old, originally opened in 1927. I am not certain if you had some service issues or any other issues I can help with. Thanks for taking the time to share some thoughts. You are welcome to reach out to me if there are any specific issues I can resolve for you. Thanks!

Great location in the P&L district - walking distance to everything. The hotel is registered in the national historic registry, though possesses modern amenities. The only knock I have against it is the lack of fridge.

Great historic and architecturally intriguing hotel. That's where the good things stop. Dirty hotel rooms. Inappropriate staff communications. Old accommodations. Bathroom sink didn't drain. Internet kept dropping. Didn't even come close to the value for the cost.
