This hotel is like stepping back into the early 1900's. No, really, nothing has changed. And I'm pretty sure the place is haunted. Did I love the hotel? No. Did I hate it? No. What a tough review to write. So let's weigh it out. I liked the comfortable beds, the amazing location, the customer service and the room (Miss Kitty is the corner room on the 3rd floor). The view in the morning was spectacular! I liked having a small "kitchen" area and was happy to have a fan in the room. And again, the location cannot be beaten. Oh, and the whole place continually smelled of pizza (I scent I like, but others may not). BUT, as others have stated, there are no elevators, and the stairs go forevvvveeeerrrr. The place is dusty and old. Our room had a strange "old" smell, and there were dusty cobwebs on the ceiling fan and curtains. The windows seemed to be original, which, on a Friday night, made our room super noisy. The downstairs bar, across the street, was having "punk night" and we heard every yell, drum beat, and song. So if a cozy night in is your idea of a vacation, the Lords of Punk (or whatever band was playing) might ruin that for you.
Overall, I'd prefer a more modern hotel. But I'm sure there are many people who would enjoy the nostalgia of Victorian times and find the hotel charming and time-travel-esque ( a word I just made up.)
