Old world charm, very comfortable rooms, window units but not noisy, quiet (even though there was a wedding reception going on right outside. Don’t expect much from the complimentary “breakfast” with a couple of basic pastry options. They do sell other amazing looking pastries. Coffee was great! Ask for additional towels when you check in as there’s only two in the room.

We loved our meal and our server Ben who was very nice and made us feel very comfortable. Stairs were a little strange but okay.
