We were very well treated at the Willcox, and although there was confusion with someone of the same name checking into our room, we were given a lovely suite (an upgrade) without their missing a beat.
The decor is comfortable, but perhaps a little confusing with the variety of different chairs which are around the lobby and halls-- it wasn't clear if they were in the midst of deciding which ones to keep and which ones to move away-- but I would vote for the latter choice.
The decor of our room also very comfortable, if dated.
We were somewhat disappointed with breakfast. The choices were somewhat limited and the toaster was broken so that only one person could toast at once. Things break, but perhaps such a reputable hotel would have an spare ready to go.
In general, the atmosphere and congeniality made up for any deficits, and I would choose the Willcox again.
