I was not sure what to expect after reading the reviews but this is my experience:
When I first got there I came to check in and was warmly received by Jose- he checked me in, walked me to my truck, carried my bags, and escorted me to my room. He was a very friendly receptionist- even noticed I brought Champagne and offered to put it on Ice and brought chilled flutes as well!
I read complaints of cleanliness- I found the room and facilities to be plenty clean! I could pick apart a few odd things but generally I was not displeased.
My stay was on NYE in the winter. It was not too warm in my room so we used the heater- It was noisy after turning it off but again- not a deal breaker for me!
We reserved a Large room after seeing some of the complaints about size and we were pleased to see the size was plenty roomy for us. In the City these older buildings are not comparable to large chain hotels that are built ground up in modern day engineering. It is a beautiful hotel in an old authentic SF Building.
I enjoyed all the decor and art work- the hotel has hand painted flowers and framed paintings all over and the wall paper- though old- went with the whole French theme. I felt this place was a cozy and homely hotel- more like a bed and breakfast to me- witch was the selling point for me too- the breakfast included is delicious- choice between French toast or Eggs/Bacon/Hash browns and OJ with lemon water. I was Impressed by the food and the wait staff- very friendly and responsive. The decor themed Joan or Jeanne D' Arc was fun to look at while dining in the restaurant.
I will admit that this Hotel was found by scouting out the "cheapest" option available near the square for NYE. I didn't expect to get so much "bang" for my buck and so pleasantly impressed by the whole experience! Thanks Cornell Staff- we will be back again and again! And refer all my family and friends!
