The Erie Hotel is, as its name suggests, an old [1890's] railroad hotel. Three stories, rooms on 2nd and 3rd. Steep climb, but I was offered help with my bag. Stairs and halls none too clean.
The rooms and bath are small, but clean and comfortable. Cable TV, no wi-fi. Housekeeping might wish to pay some attention to detail: no light bulb in bedside lamp [replaced promptly when I asked], jar of vaseline in the medicine cabinet, a box of baking soda on the shelf.
If you're a light sleeper you may be disturbed by street noise or the sounds of a late night train. Or like me you may find a train whistle to be pleasantly nostalgic.
Downstairs is a decent restaurant, great old German carved wooden bar, and Mike is a very pleasant bartender.
