First off, the rates, nightly cost for single occupancy! How many places still do that? We paid $145. and change per night and for what the room was worth, that was about $100.00 too much. We went with the mid-priced room and wondered if the room we had was that bad, what the cheapest room must have looked like! The room was very small (we are told that it was the European style) just enough room to get out of the bed on either side without hitting the wall. Our room had a sky light from the first floor right out side the window and as the fan in the downstairs room turned, it flashed light throughout our room all night. The old fashioned elevator was quaint, but not functional for getting in and out of with luggage. No character to the room at all, besides the asparagas fern that shed all over the floor! Very plain bathroom, not much room to place toiletries. And I believe the large fluffy towels they advertise lost the fluff a long time ago. The "breakfast" served in the downstairs Cafe' was sparse to say the least. The only advantage to staying here was it was a close walk to a couple of restaurants we like in the area. Otherwise, not a place we'll return to, or recommend to others. Not at all the experience that we awaited, especially based on the price! And, yes, we did make our dissatisfaction known to the staff and they showed no concern for our dissatisfaction!
