It would be nice if parking, coffee, and gym could be explained at check-in in detail. Also, when booking a room, I called to determine the room as stated on the website, and the person who took the call in May was nonplussed about why I called. More info on the website would be good. Also Wifi was lousy (but I have a hotspot on my phone.)

Amazing house, full of stained glass and beautiful carved wood. We thought we wouldn't like being in the Anderson House, but the room (2101) was large and very quiet. Staff were terrific and helpful. They recommended the best ever breakfast place - Cafe Mulan! A quibble - no reading light on one side of the bed. Would definitely return. A

Gorgeous building, exceptionally friendly staff. Wifi did not work in rooms on the the third floor but all other conditions were comfortable. Looking forward to staying again.

Exceptionally helpful staff, a warm and charming atmosphere. It was a treat to experience a bit of living in the "Gilded Age".

Good location near universities. A bit of a drive to get back to the freeway. Cold breakfast selection was not good. Mostly donuts. Main building is very nice.

Quiet and very relaxing atmosphere

Had a great stay and would definitely go back. Atmosphere was warm and inviting. Only wish the food was a bit better variety.

The Worst Experience - NOT a Published 4!

Pros: 3 min walk to CMU. But this hotel was SO bad that next time, we have decided to stay elsewhere and catch a $10 cab!
We travel extensively and have used Travelocity many times and have found the ratings to be fair and accurate. But this hotel, rated a 4 stars when we booked was a nightmare! Checking in at 10pm found only one staff member in the whole place. Stairs to our 3rd floor room were small (impossible with luggage) and as another reviewer said, dangerous and steep. There is no elevator. The room was desperate for not just updating but thorough deep cleaning. Stains on the walls and ceilings, old dirty carpet, dingy and frayed towels, and the brown washcloths smelled foul. The roll out bed/love seat was so thinly padded that one could feel every spring. The next morning at breakfast, the toast arrived tasting stale and the wait staff was thin. The orange juice had been well watered down to stretch it out among guests most probably. When asked how far it was to CMU, the valet said about a mile or two. Google said it was a 3 min walk! Which it was. The worst was the bill: we were dashing to catch our plane and just did a quick glance, signed and left. On the plane we saw a $25 linen charge!! We had not asked for any additional linens nor had there been an extra roll away bed. We had only used the love seat rollaway which came with the "Deluxe" room. We have NEVER seen a Linen charge before. Calls to the manager have gone unreturned. Stay away from this place! We will!
