In the 3 weeks we travelled the USA in October, this Hotel was our most expensive and most dissapointing. It's in a great location, hence the only reason this Hotel can charge what they do. The room we had on the third floor had a funny smell, in fact the whole Hotel did but it was part of it's quaintness I guess. No air conditioning, just a ceiling fan, no view at all and very small. But the water pressure in the shower was good (always a bonus for me) The Staff were friendly and accommodating which made up for the rest. Breakfast was definitely unusual in the fact it was in the Hotel Reception area and very cramped. It's a lovely area to visit but definately overpriced. I do know it was the cheapest Hotel for that area and location and we only stayed one night so not a big deal.
