My wife and I really enjoyed our three day, two night stay at this historic, charming hotel. As others have noted, the lobby is exquisite... Beautifully done and comfortable. We elected for a classic queen room, for the government rate of 83 per night, the price was unbeatable in the area which is in the heart of the old historic district and easily within walking distance to museums, restaurants and shopping. The front desk was professional and acommodating during checkin and throughout our stay. The rooms are small, cozy, and very well appointed. I estimate that the sleeping area was about 12' x 12', with an alcove for the sink area and a separate small bathroom. I envision a monk may have lived in such quarters, which I would characterize as simple, austere, spartan. The recent upgrades were a nice touch. My wife and I arrived here with a change of clothes and some toiletries, which fit in the room fine. If you plan on bringing your entire wardrobe and half your house, you may want to look elsewhere, this place suits minimalists best. My only real gripe.about the room would have to be the shower, which I found to ne somewhat small. At 5'9", 150lbs I am not a large individual, but I found it challenging to.shower without hitting the shower curtains on each side. A larger person, 6' 200lbs might feel downright claustrophobic. I occasionally had to hear hallway chatter from my fellow guests but I ran the fan at night and the white noise sufficiently muffled voices and I got a good nights sleep on a comfy bed with supremely clean linens and 6 well stuffed pillows. There was free WiFi in the room and a small flatscreen tv hidden behind what appeared to be an antique cabinet. All around awesome experience at this hotel. Oh, my wife thought the elevator smelled like fish, but I thought the odor was closer to leather. Still, inexplicable smell in the elevator.
