I used a Travelzoo voucher to stay during a weekend, and I had a nice stay at this hotel.
For me, this hotel was a nice balance charming older hotel and modern convenience. The upside to this being in an older building is that there are interesting architectural features and it does not look like most other hotel rooms in the US. The downside is that the bedrooms are a little smaller and the water going through the plumbing can be heard in other rooms.
If you are someone that wants the furniture and decor in a historic hotel to match the age of the building then this is not the hotel for you. The furnishings are fairly modern, which to me is an upside.
My bathroom was larger than average among my many chain hotel stays. The food at breakfast was not awesome but sufficient. I had a bagel and cream cheese. However, there is awesomeness which is the cappuccino-latte-mocha machine. It was fantastic and more than made up for the few food options.
Parking is first come, first served. Keep in mind a parking spot is not guaranteed and if there are events going on around the hotel street parking will fill up even on a weekend.
I had very nice stay.
