Exceptional 10.0
Good location to walk around. The old historic style was fun.

Perfect EXCEPT
In town for Irishfest. The location was perfect. Room was very comfortable. Love the Art Deco lobby. It would have been perfect over all except housekeeping left no washcloths on the first night. When we asked, we were told they would leave what they picked up. We explained there were none. So the next day housekeeping left ONE washcloth. This time we left a note. Finally on our final night housekeeping left two of each towel and washcloth,

Fair 4.0
Please lock the door and clear the odor
My room smelled every day of strong Indian Spices. It would give me a headache. The cleaning person did a nice job making the bed and replacing towels, but never removed the trash. And when they left, never locked the door. So when I would get back from work the door was always unlocked. That's right, you have to use a real key to lock and unlock the door, and they never locked my door after servicing the room.

Great Historic Hotel
I loved the hotel! Everyone was very friendly and the rooms were cozy.

Good 6.0
More old and dated than vintage
Vintage hotel that is more like an old outdated apartment/condo dwelling. Room and hallway smelled of saturated smoke from years of smoking. Couch in the room had cigarette burns and was worn. Bed mattress was lumpy and uncomfortable. Window mount units were on and noisy or off and stuffy. Overall, it was OK, 2-3 stars. I would not make it a point to return to this location.
