This was a nice hotel overall. For the people who say it's old, well, it is. It's a historic hotel, and it's well kept. It's a 4 star on most websites, but I would say that it is a solid 3 star. We booked through Hotwire and were given a room on the second floor. The room was nice with a large bathroom, 208, but it was near the elevator and had an adjoining door with the room next door. I didn't bother unpacking because I'm a light sleeper and the adjoining doors disturb me. I asked to move and was offered a smaller room with a double bed(202) or a tiny room/bathroom with a queen on the far corner (room 204). I gratefully took the move to the small room. I don't need a lot of room space, just a good location with a good bed. I was happy the front desk would consider a move on the same floor. I could tell moving a Hotwire booking to a higher floor was not an option.
The water pressure wasn't great for someone with long thick hair. Otherwise it was fine, plenty of hot water.
There was a tiny gym in a converted room on the second floor with 2 treadmills and a bike. We choose to run outdoors since the weather was good. They had some free water in there. Water in the rooms was $5 but we stocked up at CVS which is a block away.
The location was great, it was an easy walk to Starbucks, CVS, restaurants. The sheets and towels were nice and plentiful. I noticed the towels were Frette. They did offer room service but I thought the menu looked small and didn't try it. One of the best things the hotel offered was free dependable wifi.
There was no ice machine, but you could call the restaurant and they would deliver ice quickly. Stay in your room, the staff for ice delivery doesn't have a key to get in.
The front desk was good and was happy to make recommendations and reservations. I would stay here again. I also review the restaurant "Coeur de Lion" which is located in the hotel.
