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

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            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.
