Stayed here in June with my husband. We booked a king room. We arrived early for check in and I told the front desk agent that I understood if our room wasn't ready yet. She was not at all friendly and then on checking us in, did NOT ask for ID which she should have, and then said she would give us an 'upgrade to a suite' as she did't have a king room ready. I was so grateful and my husband and I went to the room. What a great disappointment! The building was once an apartment building and they haven't quiet made the transformation over to a hotel. Our 'suite' was awful. It was very dull and dreary. It hasn't come out of the '90's. There were water marks and repaired marks on the wall with paint cracking. It looks like years since the rooms have had a paint job. Flowery bed spreads really added to the outdated look. Difficult to find an electric outlet in which to plug a phone charger or hair drier. We chose this hotel because it was historic, but historic does not equate to old, dull, outdated. Although the tv's are flat screens, they are sitting in big old armoires which also adds to the 90's look. We did ask to be moved to another room and another front desks gent was very nice and moved us. This was a king room and although it didn't have the cracked paint, it wasn't a very attractive, welcoming room. The AC unit was very noisy and I found it difficult to sleep. Our restaurant servers on the other hand (breakfast) were wonderful, warm and friendly. They were extremely accommodating and the food was very good.
