Great location, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful hotel. BUT, I stayed in rooms on the 8th St side of the building (Rooms 202 and 302) and the rumblings from the trains underneath were unbelievable - the bed shook, the furniture and fitting rattled.... The trains don't run late, but they start pretty early in the morning - not too bad if you're staying there for work and have early meetings, but if you want a restful lie-in, it's not ideal....!
Rooms are fitted out nicely, have a historic feel to them. Room 202 felt nicer than 302. The showers felt a bit dark and uninviting, but they worked well enough.
Complimentary breakfast had highs and lows - some lovely small quiches and what tasted like home-cooked breads - lovely. But the only real healthy option was whole fruit - apples and oranges (and maybe this is super-fussy, but aren't oranges are a bit of a pain to peel yourself, especially if you're not at home with a sink nearby to wash your hands??!)
