Property could be amazing with some updates. There was no hot water, ice machines were out of service. No on site dining as listed on the website. Although there are 3 elevators only two seemed to be working at any given time and were very slow to arrive when needed. Decor was done to match historic site, however, if you are short you may need to take a stool with you to climb into the bed. They sit very high and comfort level left much to be desired. Although hotel is listed as handicap accessible hallways are very narrow and maneuvering is difficult.

I liked the chandeliers. I did not like having brown water and no water for several hours, a constant hold when calling the front desk, a constant squeaking sound from the bathroom, every door being locked to get into building except for one. The building honestly just needs to be shut down and renovated. Also, the elevator does not sound or feel safe.

The room had a musty smell that didn't get better. Was supposed to have a pull out sofa... didnt.. nothing in room about anything. And the bed linens and curtains had cigarette burns in them. No blanket. Only 2 top sheets on bed and front desk guy was like a machine. No personality or eye contact to answer any question.
