This hotel must have been really something in her youth; you can still see the stately, classic signs in the marble stairway, antique furniture, formal dining area. Now she's showing her age but is still showing her manners well. The manager is helpful and eager to please. The rooms are decorated with a mish-mash of furniture pieces and it felt a bit like staying at Grandma's. The location is perfect! Right in front of the Ferry landing, on the lake, close to promanade walk which connects to other part of shore line shops & cafes. Rooms comfortable and clean. We were on upper floor and windows were port-holes, one up high & one down low but gave a nice breeze. We were only there one night, would suggest more. Great town, great hospitality.
(Elevator is service one and very small but works well for luggage.) Only complaint is sparse breakfast and had to be out of room by 10a.m.
