Pros: Very friendly valet staff. High speed elevators were great. Comfortable bed. Good hallway lighting and decor; pleasant environment to navigate.
Cons: Bath a bit too tight for couples. In room coffee would be so much better. Lobby coffee setup is nice, but cups way too small for having to come down to get a morning cup!

Pros: Beautiful old building in a good location.
Cons: Not what is pictured on the website. The room is a standard motel room, with a standard motel bathroom. Stay at the Ritz-Carlton instead! VERY expensive for what you get. Totally disappointing.

Pros: the room was spacious, light was excellent and the bathroom, while small, worked very well. The room décor was fabulous. the hotel elevators and lobby were fun and decorated extremely well. Location was perfection. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
Cons: One of the managers got into a huge fight with the lead car attendant and neither would drop the fight in public in front of my husband and I and other customers. It was extremely unpleasant.
