10.0 Wonderful
Too busy to answer this in any detail. Suffice it to say great hotel and would return without hesitation
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Wonderful hotel, great rooms, lovely staff and a perfect location.
Cons:That I had to leave so soon.
8.5 Very good
Pros:The room was large and beautifully appointed. All amenities were available. The beds were very comfortable and temperature control was easy.
Cons:Bathrooms are small and plumbing is worn but nice looking and fits the room. The biggest problem I had was two mornings( plus a third I didn't tell staff about) when I couldn't get hot water to the shower. In one case it was a boiler problem and the other two I don't know but possibly regulator plumbing at the shower itself. The staff are exceptional and offered a room upgrade but only on the last evening of my staff so I stayed where I was. I would try this place again because of the kindness and the responsiveness of staff and if going to the theatre.
4.8 Mediocre
Cons:The hotel was remodel the front and the noise was horrible. Room so small. Queen bed not King.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Very quiet and cozy, with only about 8 rooms per floor. Rooms are small, but nicely appointed and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was great. Everything was obviously prepared fresh. Staff are courteous and friendly.
Cons:The front entrance was under construction. Not much of a view from our room, just the parking lot.
5.1 Fair
Pros:The room was clean and staff were very nice.
Cons:The walls were paper thin and the door to the room was not closed tight enough to not shake and bang anytime another door was opened or closed on our floor. It kept my girlfriend and I up all night long, I finally called the front desk around 3 am and was told all they could do was extend my checkout by an hour... The free breakfast in the morning was alright but I was too tired to actually enjoy any of it. Room 501 was the loudest room I've ever slept in.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Service, food and ambience.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff greeted us warmly and even provided champagne upon our arrival. When we made it to the room it was beautiful with a great view of downtown and all the amenities we could have wanted. Even the water fixtures were stunning. It was a truly fantastic stay and I couldn't recommend it higher.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:This was a wonderful hotel- beautifully restored and renovated. My room was spacious and comfortable. I had read a previous review from a guest who had been disappointed by the size of the bathroom, but I did not experience this problem at all. Every aspect of my room met or exceeded my expectations and the value was exceptional.
Cons:I can't think of any part of my stay that disappointed me. Honestly.
