My husband and I spent 2 nights at this lovely inn. The location was the initial attraction for us, but there is so much more to like about the property. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is located within walking distance of State Street, the historic district and a wonderful array of restaurants. Parking is provided in an underground lot.
Our room overlooked the swimming pool towards the back of the property. We had a balcony, fireplace, huge soaking tub, large shower, flat screen TV, very comfortable bed with top notch linens, and two nice reading chairs near the fireplace. Nightly turndown service (with chocolates!) was a pleasant surprise.
Breakfast is included in the room price. The breakfast area must have been upgraded since one reviewer stayed there, because there are patio tables outside now, as well as linen covered tables inside. We liked their food choices, which included 2 kinds of quiche, granola, yogurt, muffins, bagels, fresh melon and strawberries , juices and specialty coffees (like lattes). They will bring breakfast to your room ,if you prefer.
The overall feel of the property is that of a small, casually elegant retreat. You get the sense that there is no need to dress up (we didn't) but you wouldn't feel out of place if you did.
