I highly recommend this hotel. It is a standout property.
The hotel itself is very clean and well-maintained, with generously sized suites. I found the staff to be attentive, personable, and helpful. And the location doesn't hurt. It is located on East Ave, near the George Eastman House, and other stately homes of his era.
Surprisingly, this hotel has an excellent bar and restaurant. We enjoyed a steakhouse-quality meal in the restaurant, which is unusual for mid-tier hotels. Char is a good restaurant that just happens to be inside a hotel. It is not a hotel restaurant.
With the bar and restaurant being popular, there is a bit of traffic in the evenings; but that helps to bring energy into the space. We stayed on one of the upper floors and were not bothered by the activity or noise.
Interestingly, my father stayed in a room along the rear of the property the same weekend and had to switch rooms because his room smelled like smoke. (He thought something was on fire at first.) The staff at the front desk was not surprised. Apparently, this is a known issue with some rooms (presumably those above the kitchen). When checking in, you may want to insist on a room that faces the front of the hotel. Or at least one that is not along the rear side.
