This is a beautiful older quality hotel in a fantastic location, however be prepared for some "old school" hotel policies.
-Charge $1.50 for phone calls - local or to a 1-800 number
-No free internet. You can get a "courtesy access code" but it keeps logging off - didn't work well.
-No fridge that you can use - only a mini bar with a sign saying you'll be charged $25 if you even move anything in the fridge - it has electronic sensors that can tell if anything is taken out. It's pretty frustrating to bring home 1/2 a famous Chicago Pizza from a restaurant and not be able to put it in a fridge overnight.
-LogNet TV - most hotels have scrapped this realizing people travel with tablets, smart phones or laptops who want to connect their unit to the TV with a HDMI cable. Lognet blocks that so you can't connect with your own unit.
- Free coffee is nice in the lobby but they only have tiny cups.
I see some reviews complaining about small rooms...We booked a larger Executive King corner room that was very large - loved it!
