I parked my rental car in the adjacent lot and didn't use it again until I left 2 days later. This is a great old hotel with an impressive gilded lobby and well-trained, well-mannered staff right in thick of the city. While I was told that my room was 'upgraded', I didn't see how, given that the room was pretty small, as expected of older hotels in cities. But that's not really a disappointment: the bed was wonderful with lots of pillows, an ergonomic desk and chair (like someone actually designed the space for work to be done!), and fully appointed with nice towels and toiletries. I would definitely stay here again for either work or pleasure.
