An interesting old hotel. It was clean, although the room and bathroom were extremely small. Many tour groups crowding the lobby and elevators compromised our experience.

Service is terrible and room lacking in basic amenities - remote for TV didn't work, maintenance came to fix this and left it worse than before. Tub wouldn't drain, not enough water in toilet bowl, mold in shower window, uncomfortable furniture & bed and while my car was in valet parking, someone broke the back window out and the hotel didn't even bother to tell us for two days. No one is at front reception desk to help after standard hours and we had to search to find someone to get our car. I would expect this from a Motel 6, but not when I pay $500 a night for a room. Lobby and exterior are under construction and the homeless run the streets. Not safe to walk alone after dark. Will not return.

Our first room had a bad air-conditioner and a sink problem. They upgraded us to a wonderful room.
