                  We appreciated the helpful, friendly staff. The hotel decor was a very tasteful blend of old luxury and new contemporary.

                  The hotel has a cozy feeling. Warm staff and great location and the price is reasonable.

                  the fact that is a historic hotel. The building is impressive. Our room was very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

                  Though the building is historic, I thought some of the decor in the lobby is too modern, The large round ceiling lights, and the carpet was loud and distracting.
