First of all, if you are a high maintenance type of person, you'll hate this hotel. It is old, and its charm is in that it isn't a polished gem. And unpolished it is!
However, it is a historic hotel, with a history, and a unstated beauty that I, for one, was quite fond of. Throughout the hotel, different vignettes of former yesteryear guests and celebrities are situated on walls by the elevators. There is even a tour the hotel gives (for a small fee) of the ghosts also cohabit the hotel.
Some small distractions. The water vacillates between hot and cold, the room are not very sound proof, there is a limited selection of channels on the television. On the upside, the staff is courteous and professional. The mattresses are outstanding. Even the housekeeping staff are polite, and respectful. Rooms are small, but adequate.
Hey, I liked this hotel. See it for what it is and not for what it isn't. I only regret not taking my wife. It would have been a fun stay over.
