"Upgraded" our room overlooking the train tracks. As this was our first stay here it was a disappointment.

The ornate hotel lobby with its beautiful marble and high ceilings created an attractive milieu. We loved having breakfast and dinner in the beautifully appointed Hawthorn Restaurant just off of the lobby. The music was lovely and the food was divine.

Very convenient location and a beautiful historic hotel. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and efficient. Our check in went quickly and we had a lovely room. The only thing we noticed is that the room service menu had meals more to our liking than the lounge area. We ordered room service instead of eating in the lounge. The room service was wonderful and arrived very quickly. We enjoyed touring the city and local park areas.
