The front desk doubles as the hostess station for the restaurant and check-in. I arrived at dinner time and had to wait some time. The elevator was decorated as a room which added to its old-fashioned decor. The suite was a real disappointment. Although it had good space there were a lot of shortcomings. The door was lightweight and didn't come close to fitting the door frame. A lot of light could be seen from the hall. The door knob was flimsy and loose. The security chain was broken. The carpets were stained. The sheets were old, but the bed was comfortable. The toilet seat was pitted. The internet connection was intermittent and slow, at best. I was forced to go somewhere else to do anything on-line. At least the bar was clean, well decorated, but small. It had a nice selection.
