My room last night reminded me of my grandmother's house when I was a kid. My bed was so comfortable and the linens had that crisp old fashioned feel to them which made sleeping here great. It was so hot out but my a/c was great and the bathroom was really clean.Remember- this is a very old hotel with an interesting history- do not expect this to feel anything like the Marriot or Holiday Inn or any other chain hotel- but this is why I like it.
The only recommendation I have for improving a guests stay here is if you offer breakfast make it bigger and large enough to accommodate the people here. This is the first time breakfast was offered here during one of my stays and it was too small with not enough food for people. I think this is a new thing offered here and tweaking it a bit more will make the breakfasts here really nice. Adding muffins- maybe from that great breakfast place over by Mcdonalds that makes their own bread? That would really be nice here and would support another local business.
I wish I could tell the owners my idea which is to offer coffee , tea, and maybe even lemonade- in the afternoon out in the lobby. I know this is a bit more work for the staff but having this sort of thing emphasizes what is really special about this inn. Putting out chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon would really be fun for the guests and something for kids to look forward to. I have seen this done at some boutique hotels in NYC and liked it a lot
I love the art exhibits they have from local artists in the small gallery in the back. I only suggest they leave the lights on there all day long. This is particularly important because there are so many artists who stay here and this small gesture will show respect to the artist and an appreciation for art here at the inn. I know this may seem like a no brainer but someone kept the lights off in the daytime and the photographs there are really nice and something that enhances the feel of this place! Artsy, charming, fun and friendly.
The Center for Cartoon Studies across the street and around this area really fills the hotel with a lot of nice people who love art. You will like this atmosphere if you come here.
If the staff at the hotel read this - thank you for your superior service. I know I will be back to visit and if my daughter does not come back for another workshop I will probably just come here on my own again. Iove this area and really love this hotel. It is clean, comfortable, with tons of charm!
The staff really do make this hotel one of my top favorites!
