I didn't feel welcome when I arrived, and the check-in clerk seemed to not want to be bothered by me or my questions. I wasn't told that the WiFi password was in the key card envelope, and there was no information about restaurants or anything else in the area. We felt like we were on our own. The parking area was across a busy street.2020-01-30"

"A beautiful old hotel right in the middle of downtown. Walk to shops and restaurants. Expensive, but worth it. Plenty of extra linens and towels provided. The windows didn't open for fresh air, though, and there was a strong smell of mold coming from the vent in the 1st room. I was moved to another room that had the same problem, but was then upgraded to a suite, which was perfect. Excellent service and free, full breakfast buffet. Valet parking was fast.2017-05-16"
