Brought my mother here for her birthday and she loved it. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It is a very luxurious experience staying at this hotel and I recommend the river view. You can barely tell this building is 100 years old because it’s taken very good care of and the location good too. I will say the only downside is that the mini bar items and the restaurants food is pricey but they do allow outside food orders so that helps. All in all great experience.
