You can't beat the location if you need to be on campus. The hotel is obviously historic, so there are quaint parts to it, and spots where the ceilings are low and the rooms are small. There are lots of nooks with comfy seats in the common areas, and the outside areas with patios was really beautiful.
The rooms have been updated and the entire hotel is clean. Food was excellent. I found staff to be pleasant, but not as over the top and involved as others have mentioned. I would stay here again, but would say depending on your tastes and budget you might be equally happy elsewhere.
