This is a wonderful hotel, all around. I stayed here three nights in June for a conference, and in general thought it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in. I used many of the services. Room was QUIET, really nicely decorated, with thoughtful touches. Room service was prompt and friendly, as was all the service. I used the gym on several mornings, and there is a good variety of equipment, clean and well-supplied. I ate dinner at the Temple restaurant, which was very good, and also had breakfast there a couple of mornings, also good and not overpriced.
The building itself has an interesting history as well.
However great this hotel was though, the next time I come into town I'll need to stay in another hotel for one reason only: the internet service was pay-per-day, and very unreliable. I was working remotely in my room, and the pay-for-service kept dropping out if I had not accessed the internet in a while. Very very aggravating, the hotel needs to either get free wi-fi or a different internet provider.
