Thank you for staying with us and for the wonderful rating on our boutique hotel! We hope you come back again!

5 out of 5
Spacious room (number 303) with very comfortable beds and free parking out back. The check in person was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was modest and lacking in protein, but they had a variety of Danishes, cereal, bagels, fresh fruit and yogurt to choose from. Overall it is a very nice place to stay.

Thank you for your great feedback on our historic, boutique hotel. The American Hotel was built in 1824 and we are proud to say Abraham Lincoln stayed here in 1861 on his way to Washington, DC! Hope to see you again soon!
