Overall its a nice historic hotel with a very beautiful lobby. They seem to be significantly understaffed which lead to issues at check-in and the valet. Upon arrival at 4pm our room was not ready and 1 1/2 hours later we were still waiting. We finally received a room but it was not the upgraded room we booked online. The room itself is small, which is not unexpected in a historic property but it didn't have basic amenities either, such as power at the desk or a mirror in the room which made it challenging for two people to get ready at the same time. The hotel room was clean and the bed was comfortable however.
