Booked a spontaneous visit for our anniversary, partly on recommendations from friends. Nice area and neat old building, but otherwise a huge disappointment--and this is normally just my kind of place: quirky and unique.
We noticed a few days after booking that they were running a fall special. However, they insist that we have to keep the rate as it was when booked--about $50 a night more. Bummer!
After reading reviews about noise downstairs, I requested by phone when booking a 2nd or 3rd floor room, and was told I was booking a 2nd floor room. We arrive, and guess what? First floor close to the entry, and all other rooms booked.
The bed: AWFUL! I have a 12 year old cheap mattress at home--this thing is like sleeping in a hammock. Super saggy.
I also find the decor really lacking in charm and warmth, bur that's just personal taste. However, don't bother with a suite--the furniture and lighting are such that I have a hard time imagining anyone using it... ?
Seriously considering moving to another hotel for our 2nd night. Big disappointment!
