      The property is older and very traditional older style hotel. Respectable location and fairly quiet despite being in downtown area.

      I’d like to give this review more stars but unfortunately the last night’s experience really sunk the overall impression for me. I’ll start with the positive: - responsive staff- anything I needed no matter how small the staff responded immediately - Location — easy walk to gas lamp, little Italy, and the harbor front. Very quick drive to the airport. - Comfort — WiFi was fast, tv was good, bed was comfortable. Cleanliness overall was fine. A little dusty and cracked in some places but that’s what you get in older, busy hotels. Towels and sheets appeared clean when I arrived. Actually the towels were quite soft which I appreciated. After two nights they must have changed the sheets in the room because I noticed many splotchy white stains all over the sheets. I called the front desk and they immediately sent the housekeeper to replace the sheets. The replacement sheets had similar stains but in different locations. I called in housekeeping again and she insisted that the sheets were clean and the stains were from the bleach. Regardless of the source I don’t want to be sleeping on top of a pile of chemicals or a pile of past who knows what. I did end up with clean sheets in the third try. Probably won’t stay here again which is a shame because the location and all else was really great. But unquestionable sheets is 100% a must for hotel stays in my book.
