This is a great location and the design is just what you'd hope for from an early 1900's hotel--high ceilinged lobby, dark wood wainscotting, narrow stairs and hallway. Makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. There's even a message board by the stairs where notes for the guests are clipped.
The rooms are nicely updated. Shower AND tub, hairdryer, cable (satellite?) tv, and a decent sized fridge in the room. There's also a shared microwave in the upstairs hall. The furniture is all appropriate to the period, but functional for a traveler.
I had a corner room and loved every minute of watching the activity in the harbor and on the street. Be sure to bring binoculars. Watching the cruise ships pull in every morning and out in the evening was strangely fascinating to me. I was lucky enough to be there on the 4th of July and sat in my window watching the parade go by. The street noise didn't bother me at all.
The lobby desk is not always attended, but the hosts are always reachable by phone. Everyone there was friendly and helpful--offered good suggestions about anything I needed to know. When I returned to the airport, they arranged for the watertaxi instead of the shuttle, and that was one of the highlights of the trip.
