This hotel is old but is anything but "quaint" or "charming." With the exception of the cheaply renovated lobby and the new elevator, this is a sadly run down hotel. The windows are small, making the dreary rooms even more so and the artificial lighting is marginal. One particularly undesirable feature is the fact that the sink is not in the bathroom, beyond having antiquated, pitted and rusted fixtures. When we could not get the small room safe to work, the young man at the front desk advised that all of the guestroom safes were inoperable. It is evident that this facility lacks a maintenance man or the person who tries to do this is incompetent. Many things do not work. What has been "repaired" is done in a very sloppy, slap dash manner and if you have a problem with something in your room, good luck getting it fixed. As a prime example, see the photo of the toilet tissue dispenser in the lobby men's room being held together with several strips of scotch tape that appear to have been there for quite some time. The chairs in the breakfast room have all bottomed out. We were in two rooms, one of which had very poor sound insulation, and both were very dusty and dirty. It appears that the cleaning staff does the minimum, and that the rooms have not had a good cleaning, possibly in years. There are virtually no rooms with views other than of the old, odd Hudson buildings, however, I cannot fault the hotel for this, and I frankly don't care. The rooms are grossly overpriced considering the geographic location and the poor condition of the facility. Had I known this hotel was in such bad shape, I would have booked a local B & B or driven a distance to a descent place. We were in Hudson for the wedding of a relative at The Hill, and the local hotels were booked up. I cannot recommend this hotel unless you are truly desperate.
