If modern motel/hotels are your bag then I am not sure this is for you - if you like history, character,uniqueness and old world comfort then I highly recomend this hotel.
The Balcony rooms are small but great, the Balcony Suites are simply fantastic.
Sure the beds might be a bit small in the rooms but big double posters are in the front facing suites - sure the bathrooms are small and the showers do not flow with the strength of a tropical storm - but they are perfectly adequate AND THERE IS PLENTY OF HOT WATER
The staff are great - really friendly, helpful and efficient - more than you can say for most of your big chain hotels
The location is perfect - right on the main street of Winter Park - plenty going on and absolutely no need for a car - as for any noise - my recomendation would be to stay out with the people having a good time and don't go to bed early and moan !!
As for the Amtrac -- yes it does run at the back of the hotel - yes - it makes a noise but it doesn't run all night and in real terms it added to the charm.
In summary - if you want to stay in Historic Downtown Winter Park then stay here and get the whole experience - we had a great stay and all four of us will be recomending the hotel to our friends
