This is a grand historic hotel. I didn't realize all the history behind the name. The room I stayed in was a bit cramped, but very clean and comfortable. I got a good nights sleep. No other complaints. Located on Sixth street so you don't have to drive after you've had a few. The room a was a bit expensive, but after my stay, it was worth it.
