Loved the hotel. So many good restaurants within walking distance. Only bad part was the mattress. It was so old and soft, it was very uncomfortable.

It is a unique and beautiful hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. Did not get get good sleep due to old, noisy air conditioner. Every time it would come on, it was so loud that it would wake us up.
