Basicly what everyone else is writing here is true! Someone really put some thought into this place... a nice merger of modern conveniences and subtle little treats in a nice old centrally located grand dame building. Many small but smart features here, like the subtle night lights in the bathrooms, a lighted wall mounted magnifying makeup mirror, ceiling fire sprinkler heads cleverly recessed into parts of the crown molding. The rooms are pretty good sized as well - completely functional and (sshhhhh)... very quiet!
But honestly, the staff! So friendly, not pretentious, helpful... focused on good service yet still each an interesting individual in his/.her own right. The tall young fellow that we checked in with... engaged my 7 year old in genuine conversation. The girl that served us breakfast in the very pleasant Heathman café... just the right balance of light conversation and attentive service from a quirky dark haired sprite.
I liked the West facing "air shaft" room 921 - you look over some roofs to the forested hills to the West of town - nice!
