My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find a hotel that is a redo of the early 1940s. It was a step back to a time of long gone by but with a complete update with technology and modern amenities. After looking at the pictures of its beginnings you can almost imagine the ladies in their dress attire coming down the staircase or elevator to attend the theatre around the corner. The staff is terrific in providing dining suggestions and transportation choices. Breakfast offerings are more than adequate and several guests requested special items/preps and the staff provided them. The afternoon tea and Port wine is a welcome end to a day out and about in the bar/library area. With it's location close to the bus service and about a 15 minute walk to one of the main plazas your access to sight seeing choices are unending. Beware evening dining on the weekends can be difficult without reservations and Sunday evening can be difficult with a limited number of restaurants open(we ended up at the Hard Rock Cafe on a Sunday night).
