This hotel does a good job of keeping the old look and feel of it's early 20th century roots while also giving you the modern amenities that are required. I appreciate the care the staff gives to you whether it's at the front door or at the front desk. I've never really experienced this before! The room was very clean and in great shape. Good TV with some HD channels and HBO. Plenty of room to stretch out (I got the basic king bed room) and felt more like a small apartment then a hotel. PROS: Views, amenities, style/charm, staff, rooms (spacious!) There are some cons however. The parking is Valet only and $42.00 per night before tip (OUCH). This makes an already expensive hotel EXTREMELY expensive. It almost moves it into a category it can't really compete in. The WiFI is available to Hilton members but they charge $9.95/night if you are not a Hilton traveler member. For it being such an expensive hotel this is strange. I haven't stayed at a hotel in the last 5 years that didn't have free complimentary wifi. Even some of the lowest quality hotels have this for free. CONS: Price, WiFi charge, Parking (Valet only). In summary I would recommend this hotel for those on business. Couples might enjoy this as well. It doesn't seem to cater too much to families as it feels very much like a high class inner city establishment. Price is pretty steep but if you need to be in the city, this is probably the best in it's area.
