Close to Jefferson HospitalsPosted Jan 30, 2014
Pros: It is different from other hotels. It feels like a new home. If one wants something different while on a short term business trip, this is perfect.
Cons: The heating panel is too close to the bed and blows the air right into you, I turned it off, kept the bathroom door open (separate space heater), OK.
Location: There are many places to eat and walk around safely. Big shopping place nearby.
It was a pleasant surprise to see this historic building turned into a bed and breakfast facility. The enormous size of the room is something I would like to have in NYC especially with the wall to wall bookcases. Perhaps, because it was not constructed to be a hotel, there are missing conveniences that may be important to others. There is no closet for clothes in the room assigned to me. There is an armoire with TV inside and clothes hanger as well. For me staying only for the night, this was not an issue. There is no tub and the shower is just right for me with smaller body frame. A heavier person might find this space challenging. There is some tremors in the room when a particular train passes by that may raise concern in someone who has not stayed in a city with trains. There were rooms above me and I heard no noises but there may not have been guests there for which I was very grateful. I am one of those who cannot sleep with noises around me. Overall, I will go back to this place.

Charming!Posted Jan 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Fires going in the fireplaces in the common room and breakfast room- so cozy- and an awesome breakfast. Would definitely come back!

historic hotel in good neighborhoodPosted Dec 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
pleasant historic setting in a nice neighborhood. The experience is like staying in a slightly quirky bed and breakfast. The main negative is the that a subway line runs underground in front of the hotel, making the floors vibrate and creating rumbling noises when the trains pass below. This was pretty distracting. The other negative is that the staff seemed somewhat disinterested during our stay. There was no one at the reception desk when we arrived and no way to call attention to our arrival.

The rate went up when I got there, they told me it wouldn't fit the people I brought, I ended up having to pay 2x as much when I got onsite! The hotel was nice but I would never have stayed there had I known I'd be fighting all this extra rate hikes. I was clear when I booked the room how many people were coming. Very frustrating.

Great! Would recommend it to others. It reminded us of favorite hotels in Europe.
