The people in the lobby were very loud late into the evening and sound travels easily through and up the stairs. The place has character and is lovely with an excellent location right downtown. Besides the noise and Luke warm showers I would recommend

Best thing is the restaurant

If you book a room, don't let them put you in 204. The bed was ok but the room was near stairway and noisy. The claw foot tub was cool but there was no way us seniors could get in for a shower. Period furniture was interesting. Food at the cellar tavern was very good. Another time we'll just eat there and skip the hotel stay.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate all guest feedback to improve guest satisfaction as a whole. Part of our next phase of renovations will be removing the claw foot tubs. In previous years, we have had a number of them but for your exact reasoning, we have opted to eliminate them entirely. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed other aspects of your stay and should you be looking for accommodations at a later time, we hope that you will stay with us. We would be more than happy, based on availability if we still have a claw foot tub, to ensure that your room is without one.

Wonderful, historic hotel!

I loved all the wood and high ceilings. The room was a little small, but comfortable. The bathroom was small and was open to the rest of the room by way of pass through windows. There were several restaurants in the hotel in addition to others close by. We ate in the "Tavern" restaurant which had excellent food and a very reasonable breakfast menu. The area around the hotel had shops and galleries that we were sorry we didn't have time to explore. We will definitely be returning.

Very nice accommodations in an historic old hotel right in the middle of town.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
I enjoyed being at this hotel-comfortable room, nicely decorated and immaculately clean. They were a little short-staffed at the desk but very friendly.
