Beautiful hotel with a reach history. The room needs some loving, like deep cleaning and caulking in the bathrooms but other than that, we were happy with the hotel. Parking is across the street and we didn’t have any issues with our car but the parking garage is dirty and foul smelling. There was a small fridge and microwave in the room, which is always nice. My biggest complaint is that the bathtub wasn’t draining properly 😕There’s a lot of homeless and drug use in the area but we felt safe in the hotel. They have a bar in the basement which is nice and they gave us two drink tickets when we arrived. Breakfast was a satisfying buffet.

This has been a destination for my family for years. We enjoy the history of the hotel as well as more modern amenities they have which include a newer workout center, mini store, and entertainment seating area. The front desk check in with Maya was very smooth and Alex-the GM, Kiersten were extremely helpful. Security and Valet parking was excellent. Love coming to this hotel!
