Beautiful hotel, great front desk service. Great downtown location. Easy walks to many places of interest. The bartender in the Speakeasy, Dawn, is amazing!! The drinks and service in The Tap Room were also great! Bar service at The Terrace Room was slow. Our room was clean and freshened up, and we were supplied with extra towels when we requested...

Could barely walk around the bed. Order a...

We regret your stay was not as enjoyable as you had expected and hope to...

Spent a weekend. A must see place. Lovely and grand lobby. All very well kept and tasteful. If you haven't stayed at an old school Grand Hotel, this would make an excellent choice. Our room was nicely decorated and in top condition. The bathroom was very small. Two don't fit if you are trying to get ready. There was street...

A historic hotel in the city with all the lovely character and charm of hotels from another era. The Lobby is inviting and the atmosphere invites to relax upon entering. It is the charm that makes this hotel a winner.

Some household cleaning issues in our suite, BUT the hotel as a whole is wonderful, and the history is fascinating. We did report the lack of cleanliness in our bathroom and kitchen to the front desk, and they appreciated the feedback, and said they would bring it to housekeeping's attention. The bed was blissfully supportive, and the room as quiet...

We booked a last minute trip and were very pleased with location, service and ambiance of this hotel. It was also fairly priced. Decor in lobby was great and late night food service to room was amazing.
