This was a beautiful hotel at one point. We stayed on the 6th floor. Paid $10 extra for the queen suite. Two large rooms, 2 tvs, wet bar and frig, couch, HUGE walk in closet, large, newish bath with jetted tub and separate shower, beautiful old wood bed. Walking distance to W&J, courthouse and multiple restaurants. Sounds like a deal right? Our room was 50 degrees when we entered. One window was not all the way shut, the other has a AC unit in it and the seal and insulation were loose so that I could see outside. I fixed those and called to the front desk for heat and was told "they would turn the boiler on". It was 30 degrees and snowing that day, what were they waiting for? It did warm up by bed time but by morning was back to the low 60s. I guess the duct tape on the window came undone because it was warm in the hall. People must not use the wet bar as a short time after turning it on the water turned brown from rust and then cleared. The cafe and bar downstairs were closed for renovation. I have no idea when the last time the windows in the lobby or rooms were washed. There were almost no lights on in the lobby at any point during our visit which made it a little spooky. Obviously they are struggling financially, but it would take very little to make this a great hotel again as its clear a lot of remodeling has already been done. The event room was being prepared with linens etc and looked great. I would probably stay there again for convenience sake. There is limited free parking.
