This is an older building, but well-maintained. Halls and elevator were quite nice, and my room was spotlessly clean--I had no reservations about putting my yoga mat on the carpeted floor.
My room was spacious, and furnished with a large desk and workspace. There were many outlets, well-spaced, for my laptop computer and various electronics that I wanted to recharge.
My room was quiet, and the hotel was generally quiet, possibly because it's not peak tourist season right now. Bed was comfortable. The heat and air conditioning unit in the room was a bit noisy, but completely functional.
The free WiFi had several networks, some slow at times, but no problem finding an adequate Internet connection as needed.
Bath area was spacious; there was plenty of hot water whenever I wanted it, and a powerful shower head.
The in-room coffee maker and coffee were better than average. I enjoyed the free Wall Street Journal.
Front desk and other staff were friendly and attentive.
The location is near many places of interest; free parking. I didn't find the immediate neighborhood particularly interesting; neither did it make me at all uncomfortable.
It is likely I will return.
