My husband and I stayed at this hotel dating from the mid-1860s for an early spring getaway to the Cape (late March 2013). The hotel fronts on the main street, next to Chatham’s small park with a bandstand. The hotel wears its history proudly and is gracious. Fascinating pictures of yesteryear Chatham hang in the hallways and rooms. We enjoyed a lovely king-bedded room at reduced rates. The room had been recently renovated in pale yellow and white. It was comfortable, pleasing, and clean. Off-season, our room was not at all noisy even though it overlooked the principal route through Chatham. Included as well was a tasty, expanded continental breakfast in their wood-resplendent tavern. Customer care was demonstrated in several ways - answering our questions and helpfully suggesting restaurants in town for dinner although the hotel itself had a restaurant. What stood out for me was the extra care the night desk person demonstrated. I believe his name was Mark. He had been most pleasant when I made our reservation a few weeks earlier and that night, when I asked him about a Chatham restaurant where I had worked for a summer decades earlier while a college student, he went to the trouble of researching it. He then slipped an envelope under my door with a map and helpful information explaining how that restaurant had been turned into condominiums in the 80s. My husband and I found the place easily the next morning as we were leaving Chatham. I would recommend this hotel for an off-season get-away.
