Elevator sounds like a snowplow truck rolling by

Came to the Cook for an educational conference. I realize the school district didn’t spring for a penthouse... We got a room right next to the elevator shaft. It’s a busy night. The elevators go by every 3 or 4 minutes and it sound just like a state DOT plow truck running by with the blade down. No sleep expected tonight and 4 more days to go. VERY disappointing. This room should be storage at best...

Quick overnight before cruising

Love the old world charm of this hotel!!! Some of my favorite things are that the windows still open just a little to allow for fresh air, the vanity is outside of the actual bathroom to make getting ready easier, there is a desk area and refrigerator, and all without feeling cramped. Just be sure to be aware that the ice machines are not on every floor and concealed behind a door. We had dinner at the Whale's Tail, where both food and service were good. Breakfast at the Cafe was good, but I would have bought a bag of chocolate chips for what they charged me to add to my pancakes. We had to call to get the exact location. For those cruising, there is an adult beverage store across the street to purchase your wine/champagne before the cruise. Just be sure everyone in your shopping party has their ID on them! Would absolutely stay here again!

Fabulous hotel

We were accommodated here awaiting a Princess cruise. Our corner room was huge and with lovely views. This is a glamorous busy hotel and very well appointed. Comfortable, great bathroom and restaurants and shops on the ground floor. Highly recommended.
