My husband and I stayed during the at the Hotel during the holidays and found it lovely as ever. The Christmas decor was incredible and check in was swift. We had booked a Deluxe Room Bed and Breakfast Package for 2 adults, and our room was as it had been on other stays - just fantastic. Room was elegantly furnished with a separate sitting area and a very large bathroom with a separate soaking tub. We found a large complimentary bottle of still water on the counter in addition to 2 smaller bottles of Poland Spring, and best of all, a small box of the Hotel's famous almond macaroons - a most welcome treat after a long drive. (These cookies deserve their reputation for being exceptionally tasty and a box to go can be purchased from the front desk.) On the next morning, we had breakfast at the Green Room, which was included in the rate. Meal was not buffet but a la carte and delicious. To get the most value, would recommend staying on one of the package rates, which often include breakfast, valet parking, and sometimes tickets to local attractions, such as Longwood Gardens. These rates are unfortunately not usually available on the weekdays, when corporate clientel demand drives prices into the stratosphere - the same room can literally cost twice as much. There is an exercise facility but no pool - I believe you can buy day passes to the Y down the street, however.
