Great historic hotel, nice rooms, Ryan, the Valet was a delight,.however..the desk clerk, "Katherine",was extremely rude, the worst hotel employee I have ever encountered in my life. She has no business in the hospitality biz. As other reviewer's have stated, there is quite a bit of noise outside due to location and ongoing construction in the neighborhood, but that really didn't bother me.
