Cleanliness was much improved over several years ago. Staff was absent for the most part from the front desk. When they were there they were cold, bored.

Location and old charm are what keeps us coming back. Free and convenient parking also beats staying downtown. Long gone are the days where we drove in from far western suburbs to go to Philanderer's. Wish it never ended. Such a unique place. Too bad about Barclays. Last time I was there, the elevators were down. We were on the 4th floor. Surprised no accommodation offered. Free breakfast? Discount? Nothing. Should revisit no pet policy. On occasion, stay elsewhere at a pet friendly hotel.
