It’s a lovely hotel, the rooms were very spacious, the renovation kept the historical elements nicely, my only quibbles were the elevators are tiny!! Also the heating and cooling were overly zealous so I was either burning up or freezing. The location is impeccable and I would stay again

It's a great location and an interesting, good hotel. However, I would never stay there again. We reserved a king bed and w/out explanation or comment, were given a smaller bed. We are both tall and I would never had booked a smaller bed. I didn't actually notice until we went to bed. The sheets were scratchy/rough. Other than those deal breakers, the room was wonderful. A word about the breakfast - plan to eat elsewhere. For $26, you get the same as a Holiday Inn free breakfast - cantelope/honeydew; small selection of yogurt in to-go cups, eggs and bacon in warming trays. We decided to have coffee and eat somewhere else. I would have been happy to buy a lovely breakfast for much more $ than that, but I'm not paying $26 for scrambled eggs in a warmer. ps the excuse for the the smaller bed was that "you booked through a third-party site" business that staff tends to say as if you have done something underhanded or tacky. I haven't heard that one in years. Hotels have adjusted to Expedia, etc. Not cool.

There was no refrigerator in the room. We had to request a refrigerator. It was brought to us late at night…it was dirty…and the person delivering the refrigerator looked annoyed that he had to drag it to our room. He then asked us where he should put the refrigerator. How would we know where it should be placed in the room? We asked for more than 3 towels and 3 washcloths…but we still received only 3 of each. We had to call the front desk to request additional towels and washcloths. We asked for the room to be cleaned before noon. We left at 9 am and returned at 2:00…only to find that it was still not cleaned. So we decided to leave the room again…and had to once again asked that the room be cleaned asap.
