..was never better than this. Are you staying within 50 miles of Ellicott City and not staying here? You are out of your mind. Treat yourself to a a real trip. Although the hotel is definitely Sgt Pepper'ish in decor, my wife and I never heard a Fab Four song the whole time during a recent long weekend there. Not to worry, the renovation of this quaint structure is top notch. Koehler Faucets is just an example of the quality of the room. But it's other little things that show attention to detail and a loving restoration. One flite above us was a kitchen/meeting room/patio which served as a wonderful retreat. Who needs B&B's when you have this? Of course Main Street is right outside and a very nice coffee house is directly across the street. Perfect.
Better yet are T & Zan, the proprietors. We were friends at first sight. I can't say enough about this dynamic duo. They went way above & beyond what anyone could expect from hostesses. My wife & I can't wait to return, and maybe stay in the Paul room next time. Just a suggestion, don't forget the "code" like I did and save yourself a trip to the Subway at 7AM.
Do yourself a favor, get your Beatle on and stay at the Obladi! Let me know if the elephant coffee table is still there.
