This beautifully restored railroad hotel offers a special .....a sleepover with dinner, breakfast and valet service included, which my husband reserved to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
When we arrived we were greeted like royalty, our car whisked away to a safe parking spot.
After a seamless check in, we retired to our room to find two lovely long stem roses, a complimentary fruit basket, cheese and crackers and a bottle of champagne on ice to enjoy before dinner.
Dinner was available in the Palm Room....a gorgeous setting for dining. The sevice was excellent, the menu, sadly, quite limited. I chose a chicken stir fry in which cauliflower was over represented, but the meal was ample, and quite tasty.
Breakfast proved much more satisfactory. The omelettes were nicely prepared, and there was
and excellent selection of fresh fruit, cereal, and pastries.
The room appeared to have been recently restored and decorated....everything spotlessly clean. Unfortunately no queen or king beds were available so had to settle for a double, which proved to be quite comfortable. No shortage of pillows, and linens were very fine.
Despite the fact that our room faced Broadway, which can be quite a busy street, we could hear no traffic noise.
There was only one sign of the wear and tear mentioned by other reviewers...a large worn spot in the carpet outside our door.
