    Great location

    Historic property which is great, but carpet and furnishings are worn and shabby.

    My room was clean and was spacious enough for one person. They provided a list with all close dining options as well as things to do around the area. The bed was reasonably comfortable, and the staff was accommodating. For the price, you can't beat the location if you're going to the convention center or just want to stay downtown.

    By virtue of being a historic hotel, you expect that the rooms with have historic features, which may be undesirable to some, but going in knowing that they're not that big a deal. The wifi, while free, was pretty slow (a little less than 1 MB), and there weren't many outlets for chargers available. The beds and pillows weren't the most comfortable but were fine.
