I liked the historical aspect of the hotel. It's still nostalgic, but the rooms are updated nicely. The only issue is right at check in time, there was a line waiting for the elevator and it was ridiculously slow.

Rooms are small, but have been updated, so are comfortable. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Elevators were very slow. We found a card as we were leaving that had some discounts we could have used during our stay. That was disappointing, wish they would have pointed it out at check-in. Overall a decent hotel, just a little overpriced.
