  • “We have stayed at this hotel many times and this experience was almost bizarre…”

  • “A historic grand old hotel, nicely redone, however for the price I was disappointed. The on site fitness facility was basic…”
  • “If you require Wireless Internet, DO NOT stay here. There were many angry businessmen and women who were not very happy because the wireless network did not work all week…”
