I had the wrong expectations, and was a bit disappointed. Although the imposing exterior has maintained its historical appearance, the interior renovations have essentially removed all traces of the history of the hotel -- at least in the rooms and hallways. If somebody took you blindfolded into one of the rooms, and then took off the blindfold, you might guess that you are in the Sheraton in Milwaukee. The rooms look just like any other reasonably nice chain hotel in any city. The original wall treatments, flooring, bathroom fixtures, light fixtures, have all disappeared. Of course, having all new stuff in the rooms and hallways makes for a nice environment in a different way. But if you were hoping to stay in something that has a unique 1920s feel, then this hotel may not be exactly what you're looking for.
But setting my disappointment aside, it's really a lovely hotel, with a unique location, and an interesting history. It's as nice as any four star hotel I've stayed at in New York City, Boston, London, Amsterdam, etc..
