Conveniently located comfortable hotel. As befits a longtime and former Ritz hotel, we found the staff generally quite solicitous, and the rooms and halls have an old-fashioned understated grace. Our room overlooking the park was clean and spacious. The hotel requests proper attire in the public areas, so if (like us) you are in town to cheer on a sports team, bring something appropriate if you'd like a drink in the lounge. One major "ding" is that the hotel still charges for wifi - and PER DEVICE no less! It has been a few years now since I've had to pay for wifi at even the most "high end" of hotels. To nickel-and-dime guests already paying multiple 100's of dollars for what is essentially now a public utility is antithetical to the service ethic otherwise displayed. We did encounter one other snag. Due to a hiccup in valeting our car the valet manager graciously offered to comp one day's parking charge. This was not reflected on our final bill. The gentleman checking us out was quite skeptical when we mentioned the oversight, and another individual came out to interrogate us (You didn't get his name? What did he look like? When? What time specifically? Who else was there? etc.) before the charge was taken off. The transaction should have been smoother. But assuming that was an aberration, as the rest of our experience would imply, and assuming the hotel's wifi policy will eventually catch up with the times, we are likely return.
