The lobby was beautifully decorated with very comfortable furniture and an expressive portrait of Twain. The room was impeccably clean, including the bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable.

Very disappointed with stay. Hotel tries VERY hard to impress guests as a 5 star stay, but it really is a 2 star at best. Carpet stained, faded & worn. Halls poorly lighted. Windows not sound proof (heard traffic all night long). 5 very small uncomfortable pillows for a king size bed. 1 desk chair for a "deluxe room," meaning... More

This property has been acquired by Hilton who has refurbished the hotel in keeping with an old school environment. Very nice staff! The rooms had modern conveniences but were fashioned as they may have been several years ago. Very enjoyable stay.

On first impressions this is a good hotel but there are a few little things that could be done to make it a great hotel. On entering the lobby it is beautiful and you feel you're going to have a welcoming experience but alas no. Not the friendliest receptionist in the world by any means. Not rude but very flat...
