For history lovers, but with a caveat

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by a traveler from on November 15, 2011

One of the few "hotels" with the power to transport you to another age, you'll love strolling the decks, exploring the halls, feeling the sea breeze, checking out the cool, dated appliances, all the wood, and the general sense that you're in the 1930s in a ship full of movie stars and socialites. That said, if you book your stay on a weekend, be careful to get a lower deck. I stayed on a Saturday, when the ballroom was rented out for a high school reunion. I was in the floor below and was completely unable to sleep until the event ended at midnight (late for me, as I had flown in from the east coast and was jet lagged). If I could have gotten a room one level lower, all would have been fine. The front desk was sympathetic, however, and gave us vouchers for the breakfast cafe.
