This hotel, which should be wonderful considering the history and pleasant appointments, is banking on its past glory and not providing decent service. We checked in to find a large and pretty room -- but the sink in the bathroom was falling off the wall and the room was infested with mosquitoes (even under the netting on the bed!), plus the AC didn't work and the room was 34 degrees celsius (>90 F). After reporting these problems to the front desk and being assured that they would be fixed (well, not the sink), we went to dinner. When we returned -- no improvement. We were told, "just a few minutes" for more than 4 hours. The staff is busy helping customers at the bar/restaurant and could care less about tired travelers trying to stay the night. Eventually, after a loud argument in the lobby (as we couldn't get service in any other way), they transferred us to another hotel in the city.
