We like staying in old hotels, especially ones that are out of the generic standard corporate variety and found this to be interesting. It's very centrally located in this revitalized walkable downtown, near a little river and lots of fine restaurants (try Cucina Paridiso for great Italian food). I entered the Tattoo parlor next door at first as I walked right past the unobtrusive little check in lobby. Yes, the parking is around the block but we found a space not very far away even though it was a busy Saturday night. BUT, speaking of busy Saturday nights, the noise from the newly created bars, in a kind of little park area, didn't abate until 2:30a.m. We were in a room with two beds, ample enough, right over the front entrance which is on Washington St, the street that I wouldn't have ever imagined is so busy even at 5:30am on a Sunday morning!
When I asked about which room would be quiet, I was told that unfortunately they would be in the back but that they tend to be fairly dark. We did see another room and found it was indeed darker than we would like liked, with only one window. So, because of the noise and the lack of a quiet room with good light, I have to reluctantly conclude that we will probably not be staying here again. Even though the bathroom pleased me with the older "chicken wire" design white tile floors you see in older places. And the shower and bathtub were fine, and there was a walk-in closet.
