This is not the hotel for everyone. No tv's not all rooms have private baths (they do have a sink). AND the location is great, the people lovely and there is a sense of community as people gather around the couches to talk.
Think upscale hostel for adults. Great for groups of friends.
I've been staying at the Columbia for 30 years - and am returning next year.
