Sorry, but first a few negatives that need to be mentioned but have no effect on the ranking...
The lounge downstairs was really disappointing. We ordered 2 $16 drinks expecting something impressive, but received your basic small glasses comparative to a simple rye and coke....very average at best. The calamari was gross, which came with shrimp sauce which I'm guessing came out of a can. The room was extremely cold and loud! We didn't visit it again.
My wife wished there was a hot tub, but we understood these old hotels downtown were classical in build.
The location is average. There are a few sandwich places near by including a subway.
The reason the hotel was given 5 stars and ranked 4th overall in the city is its service. The door men were awesome! They never missed a step, always wishing you a good day. The check in was extremely fast, and the bill on the door checking out was accurate. Asking for a later check out was no issue as well.
Signing up for a membership is a must!! (Free). When you arrive, you get 2 complimentary waters, ice filled every night turn down service, a morning paper, and a personally delivered drink of your choice left outside your door every morning...very impressive. The rooms were well appointed and always clean.
Ps.... If you have a rental car or personal car over the weekend, do not pay for valet! Parking is free on the streets with lots to choose from.
