Rather overpriced and pretentious. Not much more than a B&B in a run down area of a fast deteriorating part of town. The welcome was bluff (my wife had to carry her case up 3 flights of stairs with the hostess showing us the way making no effort to help). The room was small and claustrophobic. No coffee/tea making facilities. Noisy AC.

Our only comment would be that our room did not have a shower. The tub was in the floor and as we are older (70) it was difficult to get in and out of the tub.
