New rooms done beautifully and with respect to the original rooms. The soaking pool is a must.
Rooms are a bit pricy to not include complimentary breakfast.
This is a fun place to stay. It is centrally located making it easy to get around the city. I recommend it for the experience which was A+.
My husband and I were like kids again! It was so much fun exploring hidden rooms, speakeasys, and the property! Best night in years! Thankyou for giving us the perfect date night!
I am sad we had to go 3.5 hrs to get here from home. It was all a dream here! Thankyou.

Hot soak pool was divine. Great fun place to stay. Interesting history, great staff. Makes a lovely change from anonymous, characterless chains.
