Was booked through Priceline, so the hotel was a most pleasant surprise. The hotel is a gem from yesteryear. If you are a traveller who likes cookiecutter, pristine digs like Marriott, then this is not for you. Instead, one finds a hotel with charm, character and history. The quaint elevator is a work of art painted in 1924. The furnishings and fixtures are kitchy, fun and unique. OK, so a carpet may be a little frayed, but the bed was wonderful. The rooms are quite small, almost European, but quite fun for the two of us.
The staff went out of their way to be pleasant. I had to print quite a few documents; I asked if I could pay for them, but the front desk person said that it was the hotel's pleasure to make the service available to me.
The Butterfly Bar was great, except for the TV going.
All in all, quite special.
