Dont come here. Really. This place was recommended to me by several business people. I will only note the problems. If it isn't mentioned, it was fine. My meal in the restaurant was pricey and poor.

Absolutely love this hotel. The décor, the rooms, the restaurant, the staff. I believe it was an old inn and rooming house and converted to the coolest boutique hotel I've seen....and we live in Toronto where they have great boutique hotels.
