This hotel was far from the worst I've ever stayed in, but also not the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Checking in and out was a breeze; customer service was friendly and courteous, as was the concierge. They are in the middle of revamping the hotel, so I think it will end up being as charming as it used to be. The beds were hard. I mean, HARD. After checking for creepy crawlies (there were none!), I flopped down on the bed, and it practically knocked the wind out of me. It was like I had just flopped onto the floor. I did not sleep well my entire stay.
I had a corner room, so the views were nice, but the windows were dirty both inside and out, so I wasn't able to enjoy them. The noise level from the street is understandable. It is downtown in a major city, after all. The noise level in the hallway at 2am from the partiers coming in was not understandable, or appreciated. You can hear every little noise coming from the hallway. My coworker had someone knocking on his door at midnight one night, claiming to be maintenance. He obviously didn't let them in, and when he let the front desk know, they knew nothing about a maintenance call that night.
The room is small, but cozy. My shower had one temperature- much too hot. The first time I tried to brave the heat, I came out looking like I had a sunburn. I guess I would rather it be too hot than not hot at all.
The elevators are slow, but the hotel is huge. Have a little patience, and give yourself plenty of time to allow for the wait.
I was traveling on business, so I wasn't expecting too much. Had I been traveling for pleasure, I would have been a little disappointed.
