We really wanted to take this long body pillow when we left but we behaved.
My daughter loved being pampered in her Ponchatrain robe in her King size bed
Do the rooms have a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee pot?
To my recollection, no. There is a nice coffee shop/ restaurant in the lobby though.

Is there an outdoor pool?
No, this hotel does not have a pool; the roof-top area is a bar/lounge that is open-air & has a fantastic view of the city; I loved staying @ this hotel & hope you do too!

"Stay at a different hotel"
"Get used to leaving your key at the front desk. It is part of the historical experience."
"I was in the back and it was quiet."
"We stayed on the eights floor giving us a good view"
"The higher rooms have more light, and some windows on two side. I like 1107."
