    What, did you expect the Westin? It's a relief that the corporotization of America hasn't touched this one building, with its black-and-white tile lobby complete with two telephone booths and an old-school Coke machine. The bay windows are a good place to read the papers...More

    We say somewhat because there are some things about this property that aren't charming at all (ice maker frequently not working, housekeeping chores obviously forgotten). That being said, this place is a hoot. Do not stay here if you're into spanking-new-sanitized-modern $300-a-night suite properties. If...More

    Greetings, Carryl. The Duncan does have cable TV, but I don't believe there is in room coffee. There is no restaurant, but there are several restaurants within a block and many more within several blocks.
