This hotel was in a very good location, easy travel from the train station, easy access to all of downtown. The fact that this was not a cookie cutter place was very appealing to us. The rooms were nice as was the breakfast.
Prior to booking I'd read a review complaining about the noise. For some reason I assumed that those people were overly sensitive and did not heed their warning. The word "Historic" in the name of this hotel means historic, as in no air conditioning. As a result we needed the windows open during our stay in late June. Unfortunately this subjected us to the "Rum Runners" nightclub across the intersection from the hotel. We heard every song, every reveler, and every argument had by every over-served patron. It went on until 3 AM.
I'm pretty sure I paid $100 for each hour of sleep I got that night. The hotel desk informed me that the nightclub was not allowed to keep it's doors open that late into the night. Apparently nobody told the management over at Rum Runners.
This place would be a fine choice assuming the temperature of the day never exceeds 50*F, and you're staying Sun-Wed. I wouldn't stay here on a Thu-Fri-Sat any time of the year.
