Not your fathers, or grandfathers, hotel anymore.
I stayed here years ago. Then it was a threadbare tourist class hotel. Great location but a bit tattered. But not anymore. The place has changed... We arrived before checkin expecting to have to check our luggage with bellman and kill some time before we could get into the room. I was told that for reasonable upgrade we could get into a room immediately. On the way to the room I noticed how clean everything was. Our floor had a lounge area outside the elevators and the room was remodeled and was very comfortable and large. The lady (Maria B) at the front desk was very personable and extremely helpful.
