            A beautiful old building in a great location, but she really needs a face liftThe hotel staff was very nice, my room was kept clean, but I feel the aging thrift store looking décor from the 1980s is holding this hotel back. The building is old and so I can overlook the small bathroom and thin walls. This could be a much more successful hotel with the right "set dressing". She needs to look historic and classic, which would not be too hard to do. For example, the door to the pool looks more like an emergency exit to a roof or alley, I was afraid to use it to peek out. The art in the hallways, could definitely benefit from a "less is more" approach. Overall, I would recommend this hotel, yet with a disclaimer that it will be a bit of an adventure.

            After reading some of the negatives I though this hotel might be a gamble but Im so glad I booked it. Reasonable price for a major US city. Comfy beds with good TV selection. Roomswere clean and the htoel staff were also superb. Helpful and friendly. Good Irish bar next door and plenty of places to eat. Nice pool on the 5th foor. I would highly recommend this hotel.

            Old but good!”

            The Hotel is old and out dated - not a honey lets get away for a weekend place. But if you have a budget and want to stay close to downtown or the conference centre, its perfect. Pros: Cheap, pool, air conditioning, clean. Cons: Smells like an old hotel, looks like an old hotel, and feels like an old hotel. Overall, if I had another conference - I would stay there again and save 450.00. ONLY IMPROVEMENTS THEY NEED - COFFEE IN THE MORNING>>>

            Old hotel (they say historic), small rooms, worst ever shower in a hotel (goes from boiling to freezing countless times), useless wifi (use my phone plan during the whole stay), creepy feeling (it is famous as a haunted hotel they say). One of the worst hotels I've ever stayed.

            付近を散策して汗だくで訪問。フロントのお兄さんに「暑いでしょ、水のサービスがあるよ」とか「チェックイン前だけど荷物預かりましょうか」とかと聞く前に色々声掛けしてくれたので、英語が苦手な私にもわかりやすく話してくれました。 第一印象でいいホテルだと感じました。 歴史のあるホテルなだけに部屋や装備は古いですが私は問題ありませんでした。Agodaからの予約で相場の半額ぐらいで泊まれたのもありがたかったです。
