My wife and I booked this hotel through priceline.com's bidding option. We paid $75/night and were at first quite pleased. Once we started reading reviews on here we were a bit worried. People had all sorts of bad thigs to say. Upon arrival we were pleasantly suprised. The hotel is a beautiful classic building with a fantastic lobby and lounge. The service was great and the staff were very friendly. I emailed the concierge prior to our arrival and received two lengthly responses listing hotels and attractions. I didn't feel that I was treated poorly by where I booked through as others had said. The room we received was smallish but nice. It's an old hotel so things could use a bit of updating but it felt clean and very nice. One thing we discovered was that you could have a fishbowl sent up to your room. Seemed kinda funny so we did it. I'm rambling here so to sum things up: this is a nice classic hotel in a great location. Good value for sure. Don't listen to the nonsense that people are writing on this site.
