I've stayed here many times over the last 4 years, and yes, the place has gone downhill.
The lobby and other parts of the hotel are being renovated, but slowly, and with some problems.
You have to walk through construction debris to to get to the front desk.
There is furniture and 5 gallon cans of paint stored in the northern stairwell, which is also the fire escape for that end. There is also a cardboard box blocking that fire exit door.
On the second floor, the entrance to that stairwell, has a paper sign on it asking guests not to use it, but you don't see that sign until you have walked to the end of the hall, to that door. If there was an emergency, then you would have to walk to the stairwells at the center of the building, or far end, and take your chances. I mentioned the sign to the front desk, and was told 'it was supposed to be taken down, and will have it removed', but the sign stayed up for two days after that.
The exterior card entry door on the north end first floor would open without a card. (and it was often propped open with something, anyway)
There is a lot of unfinished renovation in various parts of the facility you have to walk through, or around. The room was OK, worn, but reasonably clean. The room rate I paid was overpriced for the current condition of the hotel, and the area.
I understand renovation is a pain in the XXX, but some of these problems defy common sense, as well as probably violate local safety ordinances.
