    Don't pay attention to the other post! This is a historic building & the owners have preserved the charm, including the original elevators which were once the fastest in the world!

    Can't beat the price or the location! Smaller rooms full of historic charm. I personally think the elevators are super awesome! Short walk to restaurants, the mall, and the trolley station.

    Forget the bitching about the elevators, they actually run at a decent speed. This hotel isn't 5 stars, but it's in the middle of everything in the best way possible. Check out the roof top!!!

    Good service at a historic building. Well renovated. The historic elevators may not be very handicap accessible or luggage friendly without help.

    Our two queen bed room was kinda cool. It was actually two rooms with a shared bathroom, but the enjoyment was short lived when a telephone in the hall right outside our door wouldn't stop ringing :(

    Rooftop access is nice amenity that you won't often find. Really enjoyed the original elevators, even if they are less than practical.

    Great and cheap place to stay. Know going in that the elevators are antiquated and slow, so either stay on a lower floor or just don't be afraid to get a little exercise.

    Rooms may be on the small side, but head up to the Harborview Rooftop Terrace for some extra space with a dazzling view.

    Brians bar next door is fabulous. It was once owned by Joan Crawford. The elevators rock!

    Get drinks in the Togo cups at Brian's 24, then take the hotel elevator to the top.

    As many others said the elevator is old as hell, that's been 3 days and I'm still making mistakes using it... It's a historic manual door ;-)

    Ventilation dans les cours intérieures très bruyantes, mais personnel sympathique, déco d'époque (et ascenseur aussi...): dommage que les nuits aient été aussi mauvaises! Pas sûr d'y revenir... :(
