Fodor's Review

One of the most regal hotels downtown offers romantic spaces, attentive service, and high-ceiling, traditonally furnished guest rooms in history-filled surroundings dating to 1907. Magnificent chandeliers adorn the European-style lobby, a handsome collection of artwork lines the corridors, and the marble railing in the clubby Gallery Lounge is originally from the Grand Hotel in Paris. The opulent hotel lounge has 30-foot ceilings, marble columns, and a magnificent mahogany bar. It's great for an afternoon cocktail; ask for Mr. Roosevelt Lyons, who has been bartending there for 41 years. The elegant Crystal Room lays out a huge weekday soup, salad, and pasta lunch buffet, as well as à la carte service.
