This hotel is rich in history. Walking into the lobby is like walking back in time. The design and architecture are stunning.
Something to be aware of however - not all rooms have been redone. I had a room on the 6th floor which had been updated and was spectacular - king size bed, tassimo, new bathroom, the works. Very nice indeed. My colleague on the other hand was staying on the 9th floor and it looked like a room from yesteryear - red rug, dated bathroom, regular coffee maker, queen bed. We both were paying $349 per night yet our yet the quality of our rooms differed immensely.
You may also want to visit restaurants and bars offsite. Coffee is $5.00, a Cosmopolitan is $18.00. An yogurt and granola parfait with a piece of banana bread is $16.00. Very pricey all around.
The location of this hotel, coupled with it's historic charm make it a very good place to stay. Just make sure you don't get a room on the 9th floor and you have deep pockets.
