    Promising but badly in need of an upgrade

    Great location. Classic architecture in the lobby. Friendly staff. Room was tiny and antiquated, the TV was from the 80s and tucked in a armoir making it hard to watch. The room had very few outlets to charge devices and it was difficult to find a place to put a suitcase that wasn't in the way because the room was so small. The bathroom was also tiny and the shower head very low so a person over 5-10 had to stoop to get water.

    I very much like old but well-preserved hotels and this hotel is very attractive. Staff was generally very helpful and friendly, with minor exceptions. I appreciated getting a room in the historic wing. Furniture throughout the hotel, including my room was very nice, old, and in excellent condition. So much dark wood, however, with the room otherwise well-preserved but minimally updated was somewhat depressing, at least at first. Bathroom small and nothing special, other than wooden shutter/blinds which are attractive and functional. Windows open. Bathtub/shower combination modern, but well-worn and what might be found in any motel. Lack of in-room amenities at this price level disappointing. Cheapest little wafer of soap imaginable. Lotion looked like it was used. No iron or board, robe or slippers, microwave, or refrigerator. I had the feeling that some staff felt that their convenience and comfort came before that of paying guests, commandeering of elevator, etc. First morning my room was cleaned while I was at breakfast, and I thought that was great. Second morning I requested that that be done again, but housekeeper didn't come around until hours later when I wanted to stay in room on a rainy day, so I declined having my room cleaned that day, and she seemed happy to comply, not so good. Best feature of the hotel other than nice old furniture and building, and mostly helpful and pleasant staff, was the very nice continental breakfast buffet that I very much enjoyed.

    Well the photos were definitely deceiving. If you understand that this is a historical hotel under renovation and that some rooms are very small with no amenities then okay. We were able to change our room to a renovated room, that was an improvement. When I booked this room I thought I was getting a room with a sitting area and a fireplace— didn’t happen and for the price definitely a frustration. I must say the hotel guest services were helpful and trying to accommodate us. Just buyer beware it is not worth more than $80.00 a night and we paid triple that 😟.Also there is no hotel parking- you can valet or park in a parking garage down the street.

    You are near so many restaurants it very convenient. And there is a trolley around the corner that is free to take to Cannery Row.
