My new fiance and I stayed at the Rathbone for a few nights and had a great room - suite in front of the mansion overlooking the Esplanade. We loved it! The staff was quiet however available when we needed something like wine glasses. Pat the owner/manager was also great. The private balcony from our room and the pool in the back MADE the stay - as well as a good solid air conditioner and ceiling fans and mini fridge. Location is good - close to everything - especially if you have a bike (which I recommend as THE way to get around town) without driving. Only 2 negative things were parking (not a lot of it) off street and the AC was noisy in the room - though it pumped nice cool air very well. But overall thumbs up!
