This is a very charming hotel. Older but better, in many ways! We spent 3 nights and mostly we were out and about sight seeing and visiting family, but at bedtime our room was immaculate with a lovely, comfortable bed and plenty of pillows - and the bathroom was small but elegant, with very nice, generous toiletries and everything we needed (and can’t travel with anymore) and there were no weird bumps in the night or doors banging somewhere in the distance! We highly recommend this hotel for discerning folk who enjoy a quiet spot and some timeless elegance, and some seamless WiFi, 😂 and damned good coffee. A five star from us! 😘

No air conditioning and the windows didn't have screens so couldn't leave the windows open either so it was hot but did have a ceiling fan and an additional table top fan as well which helped. Room was quite small but good location, trolley right outside the door, great bathtub and nice toiletries provided. Breakfast was pricy at $18 each and valet parking was $49 plus tax which made the overall cost about $350 for one night.

I really enjoyed staying in this hotel, it has that old vintage feel. The staff was courteous there was no AC but we only used the room for sleeping and bathing the windows were big allowing the breeze to flow. The room was clean nice comfortable bed.

We liked the very comfortable bed as well as the old but fine appointments of the bathroom. We liked the fresh air through open windows. We would have liked a sightly larger room.
