Well, our initial impression was good. Historic street front and beautiful courtyard, deak and portoer staff were friendly. However the disappointment came with the room itself. For such a historic hotel I would have expected better decor; there was one picture on the wall and the rest was yellowing wallpaper. Come on guys, there's a market two blocks away where you can buy pictures for $5 each. The bed was satisfactory, however we were not impressed with the cheap foam blanket under the comforter. Looks and feels cheap and doesn't breath so you get very hot. After an 8 hour drive in the car we were looking forward to a nice hot shower. The temperature was barely adequate and the water pressure was nearly non-existant. We were actually laughing at how silly it was. The coffee maker did not work properly, we put in the full amount of water and got back barely half a cup of weak coffee. Finally the lamp shade had yellowing stains on it. Now, for $250 a night I really expected more from this place. I realize I am paying a lot for the location but that only goes so far.
Again the staff were friendly and the grounds beautiful, but we will not be staying here again and we recommend you inspect your room upon arrival.
