All I can say is that I was extremely disappointed with the Pollard. The hotel costed a premium (about $200) compared to other hotels in town and was certainly not worth the money. Cramped rooms (barely room for the bed, I've seen bigger rooms near Times Square in NYC), poor service (the hotel is entirely staffed by teenagers), and shabby cleaning all impacted our ability to appreciate our stay. We found ourselves looking at hotels like the 'Super 8' and wishing we had stayed there.
I have stayed in historic hotels before, unfortunately I doubt there is a definition what it means to be a historic hotel but I usually would consider 'well maintained' to be a trait. By that definition I would call the Pollard simply 'old' and 'run-down' as opposed to 'historic'.
The included breakfast was nice, it helped me to feel a bit less ripped off with my stay.
