This grand old chateau-style hotel (originally the tallest building of the British Empire) is supremely convenient to the Union Station as it's right across the street. It's also accessible via the PATH system underground from the Union Station so there's no need for a cab or to walk in wet and cold weather. The hotel also has direct access to the hundreds of shops, restaurants and services located in the PATH. Current admirers enjoy its central location, the beauty of its common areas, large swimming pool, restaurants, lounges and the friendly service of the staff.
