to keep it from becoming too popular.Quaint, quiet, and somewhat quirky, this property has very well maintained grounds and a super location. We stayed 12 & 13 August on the 4th floor and had a large room with a balcony that overlooked the canal and the park. We didn't experience any of the problems Emery F related. The hotel is compact and nothing spectacular to look at from the outside although there is some interesting, low key art work on the exterior. Inside, the artwork is more prominent and tastefully arranged. There's a small but pleasant lobby and small dining area for the continental breakfast. A small restaurant/bar is onsite but we didn't experience it. There's no pool, which probably contributes to the place being so quiet. When I checked in the desk clerk handed me the key to the room. An actual metal key. I don't think I've stayed anywhere that uses metal keys for at least the past 10 years. One of the quirks, I guess. It's a short, one block stroll to restaurants and shops and the light ship "Overfalls" on the canal. Nice place. I'll be back.
