A beautiful Art Deco historic hotel, a lovely experience And great location. Our only complaint was there wasn’t next to no water pressure and no hot water. Otherwise we loved it! They do need to do something about water though as we were told hot water would take a while to come through but we gave up After many minutes running Hot water Tap it stayed cold.
