I had seen the pictures and knew that the building was old. The pictures of the room looked a little dated, so I did not know what to expect. We were travelling with our adult daughter on business and needed a suite within walking distance to downtown center. There two HUGE rooms and even a half bath in the extra one. There two sleeper sofas in one room with the half bath, TV table, kitchen area with microwave and fridge.
The carpets were quite new, the bathrooms were spacious and modern. Our room with the king bed had a chaise lounge in it and could easily have fit another bed. There was a nice desk. The bed was very comfortable. It is probably time to get new sleeper sofas.
Our area was very quiet. Just ask for a room on the side without the train. The rooms were immaculate and the staff super friendly. We took the train in the first morning. It is $2 one way or $1 for seniors. So convenient. It runs every 15 minutes. At night it is every 30 minutes. We walked home very safely at 10:30 at night and it took about 15 minutes from the convention area.
This would be a perfect place for a large family. A family of 7 would be very comfortable and the price of a suite here was much much lower than the hotels right downtown.
I would highly recommend it to anyone not looking for a "luxury" hotel.
