We chose to stay here because of the proximity to the train station as we planned an early morning departure to Silverton and could not beat the location for this plannednactivity. Great convenient parking lot adjacent to hotel and station. Perfect location to walk to shops and restaurants. Since we have children, our rooms were located in the Palace building...steps across the parking lot from the main hotel. The rooms were very lovely...separated from one another in quad style with a very nice, spacious bathroom. The beautiful decor and furnishings made it feel like home. The only complaint about the room we had was that every six or so minutes we heard an annoying electric buzzing sound coming from what seemed to be a small covered space on the ceiling in the hallway between two of the bedrooms. Strange but true. That and the complimentary breakfast was not good. Would have been nice to have had a banana or some kind of fresh fruit and a waffle maker for the kids.
