I love historic hotels, but not for the chintzy antiques or 5-star Victorian haughtiness that seems to come with hotels with character. This hotel has neither. Yes, there are quite a few transients in the plaza and around 11pm there can be unsavory sounds from the bar next door- but the interior of the hotel has an upscale feel, the characters (both staff and guests) have actual character and the room itself was nicer than any we've stayed at along the Northern Coast. You don't come here expecting a hotel chain, sanitary-but-too-generic experience. You come here for the claw-foot bathtub and tiled entry. You stay here because it is truly located in the heart of the city- a city whose heart actually still beats.
Great place- far exceeded both expectations and the amount of time we had originally budgeted.
