After seeing some of the negative reviews, I ignored them as I always do..lol. It was a little hard to find the main entrance on Grand, we entered on Hill street through the old reception area and made our way to the main lobby. Make sure to take a peak into one of the ballrooms..you can feel something in these hallways, the grand opulence of yesteryear may be gone but is still alive and it's beauty still shines. However the hotel should take a few steps to shine up this jewel of a hotel.
Check in was easy, no problem...the gentleman who checked us in was neither rude nor courteous...just blasé We were in room 763 and it was as I expected, in need of a little TLC...There were some nice newer touches so it appears they are trying....the ceilings were very high, the bed was comfy...lots of pillows...down pillows which I adore.newer Samsung flat screen TV.the bathroom is tiny but again this is a OLD hotel...I'm sure they give the better renovated rooms to full paying customers ...I paid $90. On Priceline so all in all I was happy...I would definitely stay here again..
