The lobby has an exquisite 1920’s look to it, gorgeous from that standpoint. Nothing has been modernized and it’s a joy. A fine place to hang out in the evening or to meet by day. The lobby alone is enough to visit the place. The help and service were excellent.
Unfortunately the rooms can use some work. There are inadequate plugs for charging electric devices. The room is quite small and needed some work. I think some of the wood could be varnished and restored.
In general it was a good experience at an historic hotel but they could do better without hurting the charm.
