Hotel is a grand old dame of a building. Rooms were refreshed and very stylish. Beds were super comfy. Location feels right in the heart of it. We enjoyed our stay.

Positive: The hotel is conveniently located to lots of restaurants, shopping, and public transportation. It's a cool building with a vintage feel. Room was clean. Negative: The shower configuration - it has a half door, which allows water to get all over the floor.
