My husband and I checked in for three nights, but left after spending only one night. The original circular lobby is extraordinary and it's worth a stop in to see it, but don't stay in the hotel. For the same price, there are much better options within walking distance. The carpet in the room was filthy, there were hairs in the bathroom, the mattress was hard and the linens scratchy. There was a really moldy smell in the room - which they must have had complaints about because there was an old air filter/ionizer. You also can't open the windows to get any fresh air. I woke up really itchy and with a runny nose that went away within hours of leaving the room. It must have been mold or dust or something. I don't have allergies, but it seems I was actually allergic to The Menger.
