Spent this past Christmas Eve in one of their lovely suites - very comfy beds - immaculate room - killer gift shop - GREAT restaurant - and wonderful staff and service throughout. What appealed to me when I booked our stay was the historic significance. Being an old Fred Harvey hotel it was very hard to resist. The only thing that took away from the whole vintage hotel vibe that I was seeking was the owner's HUGE and way-past-bizarre paintings which seemed to be hung on every large expanse of wall that could be made available to her in the public portions of the hotel. I know, everybody's a critic, right? Nonetheless, the owner's lack of good judgement could almost be excused (the artist owns the place after all), but the political statements (regardless of your leanings) and the oftentimes venomous attacks on the clearly identifiable people in her paintings, in THAT VENUE - a HOTEL, can only be attributed to what my grandmother used to call "bad form". The first goal of any well managed, quality hotel should be to make their guests feel supremely comfortable.
