This hotel is well positioned and we could have walked to the main tourist area if it had ever stopped raining! The hotel's lounge area was full of chandeliers and comfy furniture. Free internet access is also available. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly and the view we had from the 11th floor was superb. The room was a resonable size with a sofa but the bathroom was quaint to say the least! It was very small and the plumbing looked as if it came with the original 1920s building. We dined at the Swamp Fox in the hotel which, whilst the food was good, it was quite expensive. The free trolly bus stops almost outside the hotel and will take you all around the historic area.
