Obviously the brand is well known and we liked the traditional decor. A little perplexing is the lack of air conditioning in the hotel. A ceiling fan, plus a cheap desk fan did little to ease our comfort during three hot sticky nights. This was compounded by our need to close the windows due to the noise from outside below. The daily charge of $15 per day for Wifi…..was also a little strange, as a coffee shop around the corner gave it for free….but I guess they have their reasons. Probably would stay somewhere else next time…..nothing special in my book…but each to his own. p.s way over-priced…!
