I chose this hotel based on its historic location, to stay in after a cruise. It was highly recommended by many reviewers here on Tripadvisor, and the pictures online were appealing. The reality was disappointing,however. The historic district where it is located, at least on Sunday, looked like a ghost town, with vacant buildings with restaurant names on signs but no longer tenanted. The hotel lobby and breakfast room were somewhat gloomy and cluttered looking. We arrived at 9 am, and left our luggage there and explored the area, taking a tour of the historic underground which was entertaining and informative. While waiting for the tour, we ate at the café inside the tour building and I had the best Panini ever. We returned to the hotel around 2:30 pm to see if our room was available yet, and it wasn't. We were exhausted, so we just sat in the lobby for another hour and then finally were able to go up to our room on the 4th floor. Room was spacious, along with the bathroom. The window air conditioner/heating unit was located behind the curtains which were behind the desk, so the room was uncomfortably hot. In order to heat/cool the room, we had to move the desk out to reach the controls which were behind the desk top, and leave the curtains open. For such a big room, the air conditioner seemed to do the job of cooling well. Bed was comfortable, but the pillows were about a foot thick and after getting stiff necks trying to sleep on them, we called the desk and asked if there were any flatter pillows available. They looked around for awhile, and delivered two. One was perfect and I took that one, my husband used the other one which was twice as thick as mine but half as thick as the original pillows. In the morning, I skipped breakfast as it was all breads/cereals/waffles but the coffee was decent. They reserved a town car which took us to the airport in about 20 minutes, very quick and efficient trip. Overall, it wasn't a great place to stay but was convenient for us.
