Yeah yeah yeah, charming, historic, quaint, blah, blah, blah. Fact is at 99 dollars a night you are overpaying by at least half. First off the parking garage is a pain in the balls to deal with unless you still drive a Vega and you are going to have to use it because there is nowhere to park nearby. Next the room is tiny and pretty dreary with a 90s TV set with a non functioning remote. After that there is a major problem with climate control. Because it is also an old folks home the heat seems to be on all the time. The temperature outside is in the 50s but we had to leave the AC running and the window open while we stepped out because it was so stuffy. Even after returning we still kept it on and window open for the night. And lastly the beds. Ugh! A two twin bed room and mine was impossible to sleep on. It was like Snoopy on top of his doghouse with a slope downward on either side and as hard as those gym mats in jr high school. While the surrounding neighborhood is charming and there are plenty of options to eat, drink, be entertained and shop the place should get out of the lodging business tomorrow. Supposedly Cole Porter wrote Night and Day while staying here. I think Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered would be more appropriate.
