Pros: Beautiful lobby, decorated for Christmas. Old world charm. Location.
Cons: I had a room on the 15th floor, south-facing, that was much too warm at night, despite the heat not being on and windows propped open (Dec.). Tried AC but it was extremely loud. Dog park down below by Museum of Natural History was very loud too.
