I stayed here for 5 nights during a business trip.
The Good: charming building in a very old, kind of dated style. Felt like walking into an episode of Downton Abbey. Rooms were very clean though first room was small and overlooking the city with lots of street noise and thin walls. I could hear every conversation, cough and sneeze from next door. Mentioned the noise issues to front desk staff and was moved to a very pleasant river-view room. Staff: very pleasant and helpful.
The Bad: daily charge for internet access. Valet parking for over $30 a day. But the one that bothered me the most and would make me think twice about staying here again: way overpriced room service. This was really inconvenient because the area where the hotel is seems kind of sketchy in the late afternoon and evening. I did not think going out for dinner was a good idea so I was stuck eating in paying way too much for O.K. food.
