5 out of 5
Inn is in a beautiful, restored building. Three plus floors but there is an elevator. Beautiful attached courtyard. Rooms are individually decorated and named - Hannah, Savannah, etc. and all staff are accommodating and courteous. This is basically a bed and breakfast not a full service hotel but charming in how things are done. There are usually 3 breakfast choices (included) which are served in one of several designated rooms at small tables - the tea room, the living room, etc. In the heart of the historic district. Rooms are not cookie-cutter and each has its own distinctive look. Highly recommend.
