Stayed 2 nights on our road trip. Although a little dated, we were pleased by the price and location to great restaurants, bars, and entertainment so we could walk. This IS a Nationally Historic Hotel just like those anywhere else in an old place. You can’t expect the Ritz for

"The train rooms looked like they would be hard to get into for older or disabled guests."
"We were in train car 731. Might want to ask for another one to see if it is any nicer."
"Stay away from the indoor pool. You will be awake all night."

"Room near the pool or ice skating rink would be handy with kids."
