This hotel has the potential to be a wonderful boutique hotel if management decides to put more energy and money into it. It is located on 2 floors (soon to be 3?) of a beautiful and historic building, which is also an Athletic Club. The lobby is quite exquisite.
The first room we were given had a broken air conditioner and it was an extremely hot weekend.
In the second room it worked, but very loudly. Also the room smelled of cigarette smoke. The desk clerk smelled it when he walked in and promised air freshener, which never came.
The breakfast room was too small to accommodate all the guests, even though there was a 4 or 5 hour window for breakfast. It was not staffed, so when someone finished eating, there was no one to help clean, or were there cleaning supplies around for the guests. Also, during the 3 mornings we were there they ran out of things like napkins, silverware, and plates. The only way to get these things was if a desk clerk came up from the lobby to the 10th floor. The staff was very nice, but seemed to be college students who were not well trained.
