I have stayed in this hotel on several business trips and am always pleasantly surprised. Each time ive stayed my room is a little bit different. One room had a jungle theme with animal print furniture and decor and another room was so tiny that the door wouldn't open all the way because the bed was in the way. This hotel is very unique and old and it gets a little creepy at night but it's all part of the fun. The staff informed me that there is one room in the hotel that is known to be 'haunted' (if you like that sort of thing) that you can book in advance. Even riding the elevator will bring you back in time. The location is great, right downtown. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around to walk to.I have been here during the bike events and you can hear everyone partying all night long even from the top floor which is a little frustrating when you have to work early in the morning. Overall I would say this place is a great experience and I would recommend it especially for couples and a trip with friends.
