This historic hotel has been recently renovated and the lobby is very well done. The old photos were quite interesting. Our room (807) had all the modern amenities, but the bath, although quite serviceable, is showing its age. The front desk staff tried very hard to accommodate our needs (and were successful) and the head housekeeper (Lori?) was exceptionally nice and helpful throughout our stay. Be sure to put up the green parking permit, or you will get a $25 ticket from the City, which the hotel cannot resolve. We enjoyed staying here for 6 nights, and would do so again. There is much to see and do in this area, and the hotel is well-located, very nice and well-priced. Great restaurants also within walking distance.
