This is a really nice old hotel with excellent customer service. Its in a great location, but you want an upper floor. The bar can be noisy for for some visitors. We looked into Jackson 20 but found it to be overpriced. That said, there are plenty of good restraunts within a couple of blocks.
Another good thing about the hotel/restraunt is that not only do they allow pets, they leave out water bowls for the pets on the sidewalk outside. This is truley a pet friendly hotel.
The haunting story. Yes if you Google the hotel, you will find plenty of stories of the hotel being haunted. I haven't read the stories but I did a quick search while writing this to verify things. So the ghost story is this: About 09:30 June 28, I and a couple got on the the elevator on the sixth floor. We were both headed for the first floor and I hit the button for both of us. The car stopped on the fourth floor and opened up. As the door opened, a light moved across the opposite wall. Now, there is the argument that it was just a reflection, but once you visit the hotel and see the halls, you will see that the halls are dark and that there is very little there to reflect bright light. Its a great place to visit. If you are one who can "feel" presences (I am not), you will feel them here.
