This hotel was an unexpected surprise. It maintains its historical charm - interesting angles to the hotel room, sweeping staircases, dark wood in the bar and lounge areas, recessed reading corners and libraries hidden in nooks, ceramic soap dishes and vanity containers in the bathroom, while still delivering on modern conveniences. It was a steal at the price- far below what I would have expected from this sort of facility, It offered a free hotel shuttle service (by request in advance) and luggage storage. Coffee and cookies were available at all times near reception and a light snack of yogurt and pastries were on offer for breakfast in the lobby. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful at all times. Happy hour in the bar was a good deal on drinks. As an Expedia Gold member I was upgraded on arrival (although many other guests were too) and I received a free appetizer. I highly recommend this hotel.
