      Good Enough

      Overall, the hotel was fine. It was clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were also just fine. My biggest issue was the lack of air conditioning, especially as it was not made clear in the listing. The area is generally temperate but this past weekend was hot and it heated up the room. The only way to cool things down at night was to open the windows however the lights outside were so bright that we couldn't keep the shades up. Between a hot room and blinding light outside we got minimal sleep. I won't return.

      I enjoyed my stay

      it's a hotel from 1904, so there's some period charm as well as some quirks, the bed was comfortable, while the room was small it was well equipped and pleasant, and the price was reasonable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I'd stay there again. Other reviewers have suggested the carpets could use better cleaning (or replacement), so ok yeah.

      Good hotel near everything

      This hotel is located in a very busy and noisy street, I got a room on the 2nd floor and had to wear ear plugs to be able to sleep. But is very beautiful and historic building, old furniture, but comfortable. Could upgrade the carpet and some bed sheets, found some old stains on them. Close to everything

      I liked it

      Classic hotel, super responsive and proactive service (text messages asking "need anything?") Only gripes were no AC during rare heat wave, and, of course, being downtown, there's street noise.

    • 6.0.Good

      The room was very small. It was a “historic” room. The room had an extremely musty odor. The bathroom was clean but very tired. The carpet needed replacing. There were few outlets in the room and those that existed were loose such that the plug would easily fall out of the outlet. There is no air conditioning and it wasn’t needed as the weather is plenty cool especially at night. However if you needed to open the window you may be hesitant as there are no screens. Hotel is in a convenient location. Too bad it doesn’t have a parking facility.

      An okay stay

      The room was very dark so I had to request an additional lamp. The room was too warm and the a/c wasn't working. They used to have valet parking in their own lot, but they have yet to rehire valet staff. I was left to find parking on my own several blocks away and they wouldn't give me parking validation.

      Shabby not chic

      We stayed at this hotel due to it's proximity to a wedding venue. It had a one night stay policy which is why we chose it, but it's in somewhat sad shape. The room itself was clean, but the common areas carpet is stained all over and in desperate need of replacing. Overall, the hotel is fair if you don't want to do a 2 night minimum, but I wouldn't stay here again.

      Noisy

      The hotel is old but i enjoyed the craftsmanship. Sadly we were placed on the 2nd floor overlooking the street. Windows are old single pane. Could not sleep much. Street sweeper at 3 am deliveries at 4am and trash at 5am. We asked to be moved but were denied. My wife cut short her visit due to lack of sleep. It is a short walk to old Wharf.
