So dang charming

Pros: Friendly, helpful staff, charming room, great toiletries.
Cons: Keep doing your thang!
Location: Excellent location near a great shopping district and beautiful views of the city.
We got in extremely late after a delayed flight, but arriving at the Hotel Cornell de France was immediate balm. The attendant who greeted us offered us cookies and water, and the issued us a physical key. He showed us into a lovely elevator with an old gate at brought us up to our room. We were on the Gauguin floor, apparently, and met many friendly paintings lining the walls. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to tip the attendant, as we carried our own backpacks up, and hadn't planned on it, but he was great and recommend us a place to grab meals the next day. Our room boasted a fancy chandelier, nice TV, and really nice French toiletries. Sure, there were a few too many Klimt paintings on the wall, and very interesting hand-painted decorations on the door, but this only added to the charm for me. I loved that it wasn't a cookie-cutter hotel experience and would recommend this place to anyone who has a sense of adventure. I only wish we'd had a longer stay to check out the restaurant. Merci, Hotel Cornell de France. We will return!

Disappointing, old building, tiny rooms

We thought this would be a unique bed and breakfast experience. We were disappointed with our stay. There was a problem with our check-in and we still don't know if it was because of Travelocity or because of the Hotel (we think it was because of the hotel). Because of the issue at check-in, we had to stay in one room one night, then change to another room the next day. After staying in 2 rooms during our stay, we know that the rooms are very tiny. No microwaves or fridges in either room. No iron or ironing board in second room. We even had to move the small one cup coffee maker into the bathroom to put it next to an outlet. Old time elevator is difficult to use if you're shuffling luggage as well because you have to literally hold the elevator door open to enter or exit the elevator. No onsite parking - they have a partnership with a parking garage 1/2 block up the street where you can park. Again, difficult situation when you're leaving with multiple suitcases and walking up the street (and across the street) to get to the car. No cocktail lounge and no "do not disturb" hangars for the room doors. Found this place on Travelocity. Very disappointed with our stay.
