Okay, we were looking for something different and inexpensive for a single night. That objective was definitely achieved. We did not pre-book, so were able to review the available rooms.
The building is truly fantastic. High ceilings, period furnishings, magnificent central atrium. The rooms vary considerably from smallish shared-bathroom to imperial grandeur with sweeping sea views. We opted for an en suite room (#11) facing Water Street. Good value at around $75 all in.
Forget about luxuries such as an alarm clock, radio, coat hangers, coffee making facilities. There were none. But the bed was comfortable, the shower worked fine, and the street was (relatively) quiet. Everything was clean, though the windows could use a wash.
The pub that used to operate on the ground floor was closed down a couple of years ago.
