Pros: A great Staff and a different kind of hotel. Everything has a classic feel to it (pull handle on the toilet anyone?). But the staff are all first rate helpful friendly, and seem to enjoy their job. Even the guy working the overnight shift was attentive and happy to help. Had break fast in the adjoining restaurant, once again staff was awesome and the food didn't disappoint. I have stayed at other properties in the area for substantially more money and had a less enjoyable stay.
Cons: Only a couple minor complaints, but these are both due to the class ic nature of the property. Short shower head in my room, at 6'1" this was a little inconvenient. Also you can hear heavy footed people on the floor above from time to time, or in the hall way. Like I said MINOR and not a reason to not stay hear and enjoy everything else about the hotel and area.
