A lot of history, beautiful wood work and windows. Needs some updating in the older section of rooms. I know it's difficult in this time of covid-19.

Love the preservation of history but it's sad that it is not being as well kept as it used to be. Room was not very clean.

I was carrying my 2 yr old disabled child in my arms and had my 4 yr old daughtr holding onto the belt loop of my pants all while pushing a luggage cart almost filled containing medical equipment and all our other needs, multiple employess seen me struggling but yet not one had enough courtesy to just offer help. When i finally made it to front desk i asked what floor would i need to goto for my room instead of just answering my question they said whatever number your room number starts with. my room key card was not so easy to find with one hand while balancing my child on my body to free a hand...extremely disappointing. Not a huge deal but when your in my shoes things as simple as com.o courtesy goes along way!

I loved the small details. I stayed in a different wing before and wasn’t to pleased. This time my room was much more updated. I enjoy the restaurant great service and it’s close to the training area I need to be too.

***Great people. Most important***. Stayed in 2 story side. Room was just old, dusty and worn out. Hard to find a place to plug in phone charger. Furniture in bad shape. Only 2 splat-back chairs and they were uncomfortable.

Thank you for your comments, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your room we also have a more modern section at the hotel. Historic rooms are smaller by today's standards but normal for the time they were built. We hope you'll consider returning one day.
