Yes, the rooms are small. No place to put anything but you must expect this. It's in every review. The breakfast is great, I thought. But I love yogurt and rasberry sauce. It was a great selection, trust me.
The windows should really be changed out. It's historical yes, but no excuse for this day and age to blatantly waste energy. Enough already with the historical stuff. Lobby for sure needs an update. I was there 3 years ago and everything, everything, is in exactly the same spot as I am sure it will be forever and ever. A dusty mess.
I just wish the gal at the front desk had not rolled her eyes at me. Someone had smoked on our floor and it was as if I had asked for the moon. They sprayed and it went away quickly but when she addressed it with me after dinner, she rolled her eyes again. Geeze. That's also where the lavender comes in. It made the room smell great.
I still like the place though. Location downtown, parking, restaurant are very good.
