Beautifully restored property with castle like exterior but modernized interior without sacrificing aviance. The only thing I disliked was the fact that I chose a "lower level" room which was actually basement like without an elevator. I think this should have been disclosed in the description.If I wasn't 75 or had chose use of the pool...

The out side looks really nice but the inside looks very dingy. They were in the middle of upgrades

Descent hotel with small rooms and tiny bathrooms.

Pros: The lobby was fine.
Cons: See above.
Location: Location was good.
To be fair we stayed in a standard room because of the deal through Travelocity. The room was quite small, but comfortable. The bathroom was extremely small and the shower was about 3 ft x 3 ft. Not what I expected in a hotel called Grand. The breakfast was a buffet served from 6:30 AM. We arrived for breakfast at about 8:30 and the food seemed like it was sitting out since 5:00 AM. Nothing was good except for maybe the juice. Not even as good as your typical Fairfield or Hampton Inn. We won't return to the hotel.

Frustrating

Pros: It had a Victorian look and very classy rooms.
Cons: Customer Service, cleaning , towels provided when asked. Not being penalized for arriving early.
Location: Location was great! A lot to do nearby, a lot of restaurants and shops. Quaint town.
Since I booked my hotel and flight together through Travelocity it literally said I did NOT have to contact the hotel, that they received my flight information and I was confirmed. Not the case at all! I had a red eye flight and arrived at the hotel at 7:00am. They charged me an 'early arrival fee' of $75.00 which I was not aware of. I had a function to get ready for that afternoon so I had no choice but to pay it. That evening when I got back from my function I asked the front desk for towels since I used the ones earlier. She asked what room and they would send them right up. Soon after the front desk called and whomever handles towels would not be in until after 11:30pm. I said to forget it, never got the towels. The following day I was gone most of the day and the room was never cleaned. When I went to check out and I explained the towels, early check in fee I was not aware of they said that since I booked it through Travelocity there was nothing they could do. This was a beautiful hotel and very centrally located to where I need to be when I return to New York but I would never stay there again or recommend them.
