My sister got married this past weekend at the Inn. I was a little worried since I read so many negative reports of noise and shabbiness. We absolutely loved it...and we had a very diverse crowd of people.
The bride and groom's parents, friends and siblings all stayed at the inn. The rooms are beautiful and BIG by any standards, not just New York standards. My parents had two bedrooms, a sitting room and a full size shower. My room had a very comfortable bed, sitting area and a walk in closet. They are furnished with antiques that do have some nicks and such, but I can't imagine calling it shabby! None in our group had any complaints! There was some noise outside but it is New York. We just turned on our fan and it drown out all the noise.
The breakfast was very good. Pastries from Balthazar, pumpernickle toast, fresh yogurt, delicious coffee and fruit. All served by a gracious staff.
The wedding was held in Lady Mendl's sitting room which is in the main room. It was filled with candles (even the day before), fires in the fireplaces, and the smell of gardenia throughout. There was a beautiful old bar from which a bevy of delicious cocktails and champagne drinks were served.
Cybar (the bar downstairs) was where the cabaret singers were set up and the buffet was served. The food was DELICIOUS! Once again, fabulous martinis, champagne and a decent selection of beers.
If you are looking for a Ritz Carlton experience this is not it. But if you like the warm and cozy feeling staying at an inn, I would give this an A+
