Providing an enjoyable experience is always our goal, so we're disappointed that our accommodations didn't match your expectations. As we are a historic hotel, we do have smaller rooms, but we apologize that this detracted from your overall enjoyment. It's our hope that our friendly team made you feel welcome and that you were able to enjoy your time in town. We wish you all the best going forward.
