I recently attended a wedding here, and had the opportunity to stay over. After reading some of the reviews, I was a little apprehensive. Boy, was I wrong! Sure, this building is old, and it needs some attention. But once you look past that, and see the beauty of its history and the graciousness of its staff, I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised like I was. The room we stayed in was very spacious - AND had a beautiful, unobstructed view. The bed was comfortable - much more than some of the places I've stayed in. Yes, the carpet and drapes were old and in need of replacing. But overall, I would stay here again in a heartbeat! The staff was helpful, professional and polite; the food was outstanding; the location is GREAT! And at no time did I feel uneasy or in danger of being mugged while out after dark. They may not have all the perks of some of the newer hotels in the area; but then again, those newer places also don't have the history or charm of the Standard Club.
