The room I had was old, clean and in good repair with partially style/period appropriate furnishings. The room was on the north side of the building facing the residential street so I could leave the windows open all night and enjoy the cool evening breeze. The hotel is one block away from the comercial Cedar-Fairmount Tudor style shopping district with a grocery store, restauants and a Jazz club. The Moorish style foyer and central courtyard are architectually interesting and attractive. The grounds are well kept. The guests are an ecclectic mix of semi-permenent retired residents, hotel guest and international adult students taking advanced courses at one of the local hospitals. Don't miss the included continental breakfast so that you can meet some of these educated, intelligent and well traveled people who seem to enjoy the social interactions. The front desk crew is a little amaturish but that is part of the charm of the place.
If you have any element of adventure in your spirit the Alcazar is a great place to stay without really having to compromise on anything. If you are more of a Hilton Garden Inn type of person this is not your Hotel.
