I came here when it was ""pre-Ballentine's""--it was run by a young German couple that had helped restore this vintage architectural gem. It was clean, well-run, offered a wonderful and healthy breakfast buffet of fresh fruits and pastries. And it was inexpensive! The place is still in the same shabby neighborhood, but the new owners have ""kitched"" it up and raised the costs SKY HIGH! We're merely looking at the Warhol prints and '50's furniture, not buying them!
Pros: architect's treasure
Cons: poor service, high cost, late check-in
