Nice old building in nice location by the lake but it stops there. Front desk staff girls where like walking Zombies, no acknowledgement at all when you walk in, no smile no hello and didn't seem to know how to check someone in. Often no one there at front desk for long stretches of time. When you do get their attention they make you sign a paper with their "policies" urgh!! No help offered to carry our luggage up the stairs and no elevator. The floor and walls are thin and you can hear people trouncing around all night and morning. 1911 restaurant had no one there day or night. So if the lake view is all you need then you are all set.
