The location and historic charm are off the hook, Rooms we're lacking for the quality we were expecting.. All and all good stay...
The location is great for proximity to downtown and Vanderbilt. The bar and lobby areas are nice. Bartenders were friendly and had good wine suggestions. There was a wedding on Saturday that took over the entire lobby for much of the day and night, so that cut down on our enjoyment. Friday night we enjoyed having a glass of wine in the lobby while listening to live music and waiting to meet friends for dinner. The shower stall was old and had mold and mildew stains in the grout. We were awakened several times during the night by people passing through in the hall. They weren't being excessively noisy; it seems to be a design flaw. I much prefer the Hutton. Even the Loews is better.
Easy access, location, covered parking, clean place.
Hotel was closed down, apparently for weeks, upon arrival, due to an electrical issue. Was not notified prior to arrival...decided to cancel rather than agreeing to stay at their replacement Marriott which was further from downtown and not rated as well.
