Traded charm and warmth for utilitarian business model.

United States

This use to be one of the nicest old hotels in the city. The lobby still retains the beautiful old wood and grand staircase. However, they opted to redo the rooms in shades of institutional white and grey. Have substituted comfortable overstuffed furniture for tiny chairs and tables. In our room the TV can only be watched by pulling the tiny chairs in front of TV not from the bed or couch. The once well stocked mini fridge is only for drinking. So not kid friendly anymore. This is obviously meant for the business people not for romantic getaways or families. Will not return.
