Very nice, clean hotel. The rooms are outdated. It gives it more of a antique, bed and breakfast look if that is what you like.

The grounds are nicely kept. I had two rooms, The rooms are outdated and in need of a good cleaning. Was not able to experience the spa or pool on this visit.

very historical - what we were looking for; room furniture a little old- but i'm guessing updating is coming soon, as renovations are under way in main areas also, did not like that FOX news/business channel was 'off' until the morning we were checking out

Too many kids in the women' s locker room and the floor was wet from them all going to the pool. There was no privacy to dress. We waited an hour for our dinner in the dining room There was a wedding party of 35 which took priority. When we did get the food it was cold. For breakfast I would have preferred to order a la carte but could not get any service so I wound up getting the buffet. Will not stay here again.

At exactly 1100 they locked me out of room while taking stuff to car. Had to go to front desk twice to get key card activated to re-enter room. Other than the pettiness of the automaticity locking people out the room and hotel personnel were great.
