Tiny, unattractive rooms
Posted Aug 30, 2016
I was very disappointed. I guess by the "historic" label, they were trying to make up for the gross decor and materials. I have never seen such a tiny room! They insisted that the beds were all queen beds, but our bed was the measurements of a full (we checked). The room had the bare essentials- bed, small desk w/chair, window, ac, tv, and a bathroom with a toilet and tub. No closet. A small sink w/mirror was located OUT of the bathroom, next to the bed. the bathroom worked fine, but the tub made strange gurgling noises periodically through the night. Again, I can't even believe how small that room was. The distance from the floor to the ceiling was longer than the distance from one wall to another. There wasn't really anything else nice about the hotel. They had a rooftop patio that was ok. The employees weren't especially helpful or welcoming, and we wished they had a dedicated concierge that helped with recommendations for dining and entertainment. Valet parking worked out pretty well. Oh, and the elevators are a little scary to use. They are old, with doors that open toward you and then a metal grate you have to push open and close manually. They were also very slow, so we took the stairs every time.
