I stayed at the Tidewater over Memorial Day weekend for my brother's wedding. The hotel itself was very historic and quite charming. Cleanliness was impeccable, the parking valet-man was very quick and efficient; a quick call down to the desk just before leaving the room ensured our car was waiting as soon as we walked into the lobby. Try getting valet service that fast at a large hotel!
As the best man, I would have liked my room to be closer to my brother's, or at a very minimum, on the same floor. (As a side note, they had originally reserved the room for my parents to be adjacent to the Honeymoon suite with a common wall... what were they thinking?! ;) Overall though, we had a wonderful experience at the hotel. Room size was ample, though some of the singles in the wedding party had smaller rooms, the vast majority of the rooms were quite large by historic/boutique hotel standards.
The TWI event staff absolutely went out of their way to ensure the wedding reception went off without a hitch. They made my job and the maid of honor's job easy.
There was really only one thing I had a problem with and why I am not giving my experience 5 stars:
The TWI has got to get a handle on the HVAC system. The outside temperature was somewhat warm over our stay... about 80-90 degrees each day. Our thermostats were locked and unable to be set below 70 degrees. For the prices charged for a room, one should have the freedom and ability to set a thermostat below 70 degrees. In addition, even when it was set at 70 degrees, the room would rarely go below 73 degrees. While it was not unbearably warm in our room, we were not completely comfortable, especially while trying to sleep.
I would stay at the TWI again if I was attending events on location. If I was not attending events on location, I would likely choose another Easton hotel with perhaps less amenities/luxuries that has a working thermostat. However, should the TWI revamp their cooling system, they'd be 5 star in my book and I'd DEFINITELY stay again.
