This was our 8th year to stay here. The hotel has undergone renovations, but kept the charm. We love the location; great restaurants & shopping are a short walk away. The hotel staff are very helpful & friendly.

Fireplaces, balconies, filling breakfast and very well trained and friendly staff. The rooms were very clean and stocked with nice toiletries and a Keurig in the room and a well decorated room. We did have difficulty with our fireplace and it would not stay lit so they gave us a discount on the room rate! Only negative was the breakfast was ok. Plenty of choices, but the eggs were not that good. I would stay here again.
