The Hotel Coolidge is a quaint, historic, nicely appointed place. While my room & my mothers' room were quite clean, my brother did find multiple long black hairs on his pillows, in a rolled up blanket, and in the bathtub. Not the worst thing but it did make him uncomfortable. In my room all the windows utilized blinds. Not only did the blinds do little to darken the room enough for sleep, one of the blinds had no handle attached to close it so I had to climb up on a chair to turn the little nub at the top. (Not the safest thing in the world.) The lights right outside my window kept my room quite light, but the traffic was the worst. I was not forewarned about the very close train whistles that repeated several times throughout the night, plus the traffic in general, in particular the frequent motorcycles & loud trucks, and a barking dog that sounded as if it was right outside the front door, which my room was above. If it's sleep you're looking for, definitely don't stay in room 105 & also ask ahead if a quiet room anywhere is possible. The continental breakfast was quite limited though the coffee was good. The cafe attached to the hotel via a connecting door was only open Mon - Friday, a major bummer for Saturday or Sunday visitors. Nearby restaurants were almost non-existent & very few shops available. The one big positive was the employees of the hotel. All were extremely friendly, pleasant, & helpful. Parking is behind the hotel but it was usually full so we had to park in a lot a little farther away & rather close to a local bar/dive kind of a place. I had no choice but to park there but felt uncomfortable doing so. Again, the hotel is charming, mostly clean, coffee good, comfortable bed, & very nice employees but in general, not for me. I need my sleep.
