Great and convenient location. Beautiful lobby. Expensive parking. Unfortunately, the room was tiny with the worst view i've ever had, not that i stayed in the room much. The view was of the backside of buildings and a large, dirty rooftop air conditioning condensor. The "view" was so bad i could only laugh. I suppose if i had been warned in advance, it may not have been so shocking. For this reason alone, i would not stay here again.

This is a lovely hotel. It was not clear in booking through Travelocity, however, that we were not getting breakfast and parking included in our price.

I liked the location and the staff. Sitting outside in the evening and having e few drinks was very enjoyable after a day sightseeing.

We stayed at the Lord Nelson on 6/12 and 6/15, with a trip elsewhere on the other two nights. The first night was great! Unfortunately the Saturday night stay was rowdy and noisy until about 4 AM -- shouting and slamming of doors (I was on 5th floor) and general misbehavior. I had to leave very early (5:30 AM) on Sunday so the general chaos on our floor prohibited me from getting a good night's rest. It was very unfortunate.
