Really nice staff! We stayed in the Garden Room and we wished we could have enjoyed the terrace however the week was pretty cool so we did not use it. In warmer months it certainly expands on the space and space in NY is always a plus. I have to say that the shower is strange albeit usable. I understand that in a house of that age that there are compromises to be made and no doubt it was the best that could be managed. The room is a good size, the bed comfortable and the quiet was a pleasant surprise as we pretty consistently heard how noisy NY could be. You hear people on the stairs but not noise from outside the building. If we visit again we will stay at 1871 House.
