This is a very, very, very, very... old Hotel and it shows. We chose it for it's location and if it wasn't for that and being clean... we would have gone elsewhere. The staff are all extremely friendly and professional and it is run very well. The hotel has a bed and breakfast feel. The rooms are so very old and tired, but clean. The historic wood floors sag and creek, the bathroom is very tiny, the furniture is thrift store-like, the a/c mounted on the wall. The electrical outlet on the baseboards don't hold a plug. We could hear our neighbors every word and their alarm clock every morning. The noise from housekeeping's vacuums and the restaurant below was a bit much at times. Thank goodness for the Whitenoise App on our Iphone. The train behind the hotel also shakes the bed when it passes. The balconies are shared with the other units and have overgrown plants blocking the view and for privacy from the street. The shower water pressure was low and a tiny shelf for counter space. There was no blow dryer. There is very limited parking, but they do offer a valet-type service as long as no one parks in the street spot. I really want to like this hotel and rate it higher, but in all honesty... we will never stay there again. The hotel occupancy seems pretty high considering, but they do have an awesome location on Park Ave and walking distance to Rollins College.
