I stayed here for 1 night on business 10/28. First impression, I'm not going to lie, was this looks like the overlook hotel in that movie "the Shinning". The main enterance is a bit understated. I wasn't sure I was going in the main enterance, or a side door. Check in was a breeze and the staff was friendly and welcoming. As I walked down the wide, never ending hallway to my first room floor, I was sure I would find 2 creepy little girls at the end somewhere. My keey didn't work, but a housekeeper saw me struggling and quickly stepped in to help. The room was small, but nice. The bathroom looked to be newly remodeled. The bed is quite firm, but I prefer a firm bed. I ordered roomservice and was greeted by name as I placed my order, which arrived in under 30 mintues. The waiter was again very friendly, and checked back roughly 2 hours later to see if everything was satisfactory, and if he could pick up the tray. I do prefer a more modern hotel, but as this hotel is close to my business needs, I'm sure I'll be back. However, if you like old school hotels with plenty of history and friendly staff, this is your place!
