This is a nice hotel with years of history - A big shout out to some of those who treated me very well - Sam and Geri from the restaurant - Nancy and Cindy from the bar. They had a smoking room available for me in this year of 2013 (very rare these days) - Awesome!!! I smoked maybe a couple of cigarettes in my room per night, tops, but when I would come back in after work it smelled like it has become a smoking lounge - I suspect staff use the smoking rooms for this purpose as I am a smoker and know the difference (and the ashtray moved around), but ok.
I stayed in two different rooms, neither had even a small fridge. I called Room Service to ask for an ice bucket, but they said I had to go to the front desk, so I did. They assured me I had one in my bathroom, and I said I did not so they sent me one. Actually, they were right - I just hadn't recognized it as an ice bucket because it was so small I thought it was for holding toothbrushes. I could maybe fit one soda or beer in it to keep it cold, much less a 12 pack!
But hey, the people there were very, very nice and friendly to me. Their breakfast buffet is great, especially on Sundays!!! I got some free mimosas on that deal ($6 each when not free).
