This is possibly the most beautiful hotel that I have ever stayed in! Everything about it from the outside to the inside is fabulous! It has been beautifully restored. We stayed in a King Deluxe Suite and it was huge. The sitting area had a lovely couch, chairs, a large desk, and a flat screen TV. The furnishings including the drapes, lamps, and bedcover were beautiful. There was a Keurig coffeemaker on the coffee bar and soft robes in the closet. The large bath featured granite countertops with two sinks, huge thick towels and a large shower. The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The only bad experience we had did not have anything to do with Hotel Julien. The lady at the front desk told us some places close by to eat. She recommended Star Restaurant and Brewery and L-May since we asked for some place more casual. We arrived at Star and they asked if we would like to eat inside or outside. Since it was a beautiful day, we chose outside. The hostess told us to just go outside and seat ourselves, which we did. Well, we waited and waited while the waiters just walked right by our table and ignored us. After waiting 15 minutes with no service, another couple walked in and sat down. Within a few minutes, they were waited on. Since it had been 20 minutes and still no service, we got up and left. We then decided to try L-May, but when we arrived it was closed (they are only open certain days of the week). We were standing outside L-May when a nice young man walked by and we asked him if he knew of a good restaurant close by. He told us to go to Mario's Italian Reataurant. We are so glad we did. The food was wonderful. It is a family owned restaurant and has been there a long time. The waitresses were very nice and Mario is there to greet you. I highly recommend it! I also highly recommend Hotel Julien!!
