The hotel is very old school, but very pleasant. It was clean, well disinfected, and the staff was always attentive to our needs. The only thing is that I had to check out early due to an emergency and there was no one at the front desk so I had to do express check out.

I chose this hotel because it was pet friendly and in a good location for us. It is an older hotel (built in 1915) and listed in the city’s Historic Registery. It is a beautiful property and well preserved. What I liked most was the friendliness of the staff and the homey environment. The breakfast buffet is included and it is elegant and delicious because they have a waitstass and they cook the food to your specific order. They also have a special area for guest to have breakfast with their pets so no need to leave your dog in the room. The neighborhood is very walkable with lovely cobblestone streets. It is a great neighborhood to walk your dog in and my dog was very happy.
