We checked in on a Saturday, the online check in is pretty cool so that you just get there and get the key, but there is no designated parking for the hotel so you have to find your own parking, it wasn't too bad because on Sundays there is free parking all around but other days it is 90 minute parking until 6 pm. When we first went in and asked if they had designated parking spaces, the girl at the front desk was very rude. The hotel was clean and everyone wore masks. Besides the rude girl at the front, everything else was beautiful.

First and foremost, the staff is terrible. The front desk clerk was young and argumentative when asked simple questions. The hotel has an elevator but you have to go through a courtyard with steps. You cannot take a valet and if you have several bags, this will be difficult. The hotel does not state there is no AC. The Expedia site doesn’t warn you either. We had to leave windows open. There is lots of noise late night with traffic and early morning with trucks stocking local bars and restaurants. Late noise ended around 11 pm and early noise started before 6 am. We found hair in our bed. Room smelled dusty. We do not recommend staying here.

It’s a historic property and worth a visit if you enjoy older buildings. I suggest you wait until corona visit shut down is over. Parking is a problem. There is no on site parking and pubic garages are expensive and a bit of a walk. I suggest getting a room on the Alvarado street side of the hotel. The Calle Proncipale side has a lot of night traffic, garbage pickup, delivery trucks, etc.
