This is a great hotel with large rooms that are well decorated. Huge bathroom with very comfortable beds. Lobby staff was helpful and friendly. The view was not very good but that didn't matter. I wasn't not disappointed with this hotel.

Another doorman (don't recall his name) gave us explicit instructions on how to take the bus to the Mint and even walked us to the bus stop. We...

Was there with my wife for 5 days and we had a blast! Great room service, beautiful room and bath and great free WiFi. And I ask you, who doesn't like to be greeted with Bon Jour and Merci rather than "Hey you"! You will love staying in this hotel I assure you of that.

The woodwork was beat up and needed repair and the carpets needed replacing. The hotel needs a minor and not a full scale refresh. The staff was wonderful at every turn in every position. The hotel is wonderfully located by many attractions of the Renaissance of the center city. We recommend it.
