musty, dirty, smoky, run down place..and they don't care – Billed as a 1920's, remodeled jewel of a luxury hotel, this place is just a pig in lipstick. I asked for a recieved one of the remodeled rooms; the most expensive one they had and when we got to the room, steam heat, NO AC, half the windows had no screens, and there must have been over 10 coats of paint on the thick old plaster walls and wood? trim.

Room was filthy with sex stains on the decorative bed pillows, hairs all over the bed and dead bugs everywhere. Remodeled room furniture was ok..but less than expected from luxury hotel.

Billed as non-smoking throughout yet the halls, and the rooms smell strongly of cigerette smoke; could not get away from the smell no matter where we went.

There were NO persons employed to help with luggage or anything else and the only employee we spotted was the front desk person (must say that he tried ..but what can he do?).

Apparently this place is over half filled with appartments that are intermixed with the hotel rooms and the tenents are mostly lower income, lower class (though cheerful for the most part) people who could give a darned less whether you hear their arguments, or smell their smoke.

Don't bother to complain or call the owner or manager as, though the number is available, the don't answer and that voicemail box is full all the time.

Oh, they have free breakfast, but..are you ready for this, when we got down there at 9:30 am, there were three boxes of cerial, two english muffins, no coffee, no milk left. There was a hot waffle iron there, and batter in the mini fridge; but you had to make it yourself if you wanted it and they were out of butter and syrup.

Oh..and the bed was as hard as a rock and feld like sleeping on sandpaper as they has some way long ago worn out 1/2" matress pad under the sheets that was actually so old that it was hard on the foam nubs.

There were some good things about the astor;

1) the grandfather clock in the lobby is a treasure of victorian style and bongs nicely

2) parking was $5 a night

No matter what price you get this for, resist..don't do it..motel 6 is a better room with more amenities..and that is saying something.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, restored with antiques and period reproductions. – In Short
This grand, eight-story hotel is as graceful and refined today as it was when it opened in 1918. Elegant stained-glass ceiling domes stream colorful light into a French, classical-inspired lobby. Spacious rooms are simple in design, yet luxuriously comfortable. An attentive staff and full-service amenities, such as a beauty salon, fitness center and casual restaurant/bar, make this classy hotel a popular choice for travelers.
