In general we liked this place a lot. The lobby area is very cool and the staff are very accommodating and nice. The room, while fully renovated, was not that comfortable. There was inadequate storage in the bathroom and bedroom. We really could not unpack at all. We also found the room unusually humid. We informed them of this and they felt it was just due to the weather but it was strange. My husband says it was not special enough to go back, but I would go. It's a great location and has a lot of historical feel to it.
