Hotel is very grand especially the lobby. The staff were courteous and very professional. It was a short stay, but we enjoyed it.
Pros: The beds are incredibly comfortable and the location is fantastic.
Cons: The bathrooms are really, really small--it's a old hotel. We didn't mind too much b/c only there for a night, but if stayed longer that might be a problem.

Pros: It's a classy older hotel.
Cons: I was just overnight and if there is a full-on restaurant attached to the hotel, I didn't see it. The Palm Court serves food but seems to have a very limited menu.
