Liked: The location was great and the staff was excellent.

Disliked: If you're a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. The lights in the hallway shone all through the night into the rooms and the walls were pretty thin. If that doesn't bother you, however, this is a great place to stay.

Liked: Location was great; building had a lot of character.

Disliked: Staff was quite dismissive and not particularly knowledgable when we arrived. We also did not get the room we had reserved. All of the drains were clogged, the computer mouses didn't work very well. They charged for luggage storage. All little annoying things that, when combined, made our stay unpleasant.
