The Lowe is a gracious and charming turn of the century grand hotel. It drips ambiance, and there are fascinating books, curiosities and antiques at every turn. It is a wonderful place to explore - hence a destination in it's own right. The grand ballroom and banquet room are most excellent, and a second floor parlor is provided to pass a lazy afternoon. We absolutely loved the Lowe and will return. That said, some expectations were lacking. In general the rooms were some what lacking in neatness and cleanliness and daily 'service' was limited to emptying the trash and adding a roll of tissue. There are few electrical outlets and WiFi is spotty at best. The mattress in our room (206) badly needed an update and a/c are window units only, remember there was NO a/c in 1901. It looked like the current owners were in the process of up dating more of the hotel (like rowing up river and winning). Dining options in Point Pleasant are severely limited (not the fault of the Lowe). All in all, we had a very good experience for our Silver wedding anniversary in a neat, historical quirky Americana town. If you are looking for the Holiday Inn, the Lowe is probably not for you. If you are looking for a unique,more comfortable than not experience, book a trip today. Oh - and there are ghost. We experience two.
P.S. I think we will ask for rooms 211 or 310 the next time. They had the right feel for us.
