After 2000 miles on the road, the two "downsides" (remote parking and 3 flights of stairs) turned into welcome opportunities to stretch our legs, and there is a loading/unloading spot on Water St. for moving luggage.
The room itself was cozy without feeling cramped and historic without feeling out of date -- 1911 plumbing with 2011 reproduction fixtures, for example. (Tip: the hallway floors are creaky, so I'm guessing end-of-the-hallway rooms would be quieter.)
Amenities -- the sort of "high touch" things that were remarkable 10 years ago are present at Vineyard Square, sans hoopla. A nice continental breakfast, spa, fitness center, etc., is probably still remarkable for a 28-room hotel, but there you are. The staff recognized us by name throughout the stay and volunteered to find a florist when my wife worried aloud that the bride's flowers had opened prematurely.
I very seldom indulge in this sort of luxury, so it's a temptation to demur from the level of service inherent in this establishment. But the staff all act like owners -- this is the first hotel I've seen where "guest" is not a euphemism.
