We stayed here a couple of nights through Priceline - cost was 100 per night plus fees and taxes. We got a nice room on the 9th floor overlooking the park and harbor. As some other reviewers have noted, it seems that if you come in through a discounter you get the smaller older rooms but still, ours was reasonably sized, had a queen bed, large dresser, LCD TV, desk, full closet etc. It did have a tiny bathroom - it was interesting to see how you can fit a toilet, sink and bath/shower into a 5x5 space. The room hadn't been renovated, so at first glance it looked good - gold colour fixtures, ornate woodwork, etc, but on closer examination, you could see some corrosion and wear. Still, everything was clean and comfortable, nice amenities (Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, plush towels, private label water bottles) and the staff was great. The hotel is right on the edge of the historic district and you can walk to all the sights and restaurants. The parking garage is right next door and costs $14 per night if you park yourself. The garage was clean and well lit, so not a concern for nighttime parking.
