Stayed for a Saturday night in a "Grand Park View" room. Absolutely beautiful -- while it only faces a tiny green spot (complete with statue of William Lloyd Garrison himself) the room was gorgeous. Corner room with big windows on two walls, tasteful antiques paired with modern, black, if a bit odd, bedroom furniture (looked sort of 90s Italian to me), great soothing color scheme and aesthetics on the more masculine side (happily free of frills). Luxurious roomy marble shower, great toiletries (Bulgari) as others have pointed out. Really the room felt like a restful retreat.
Small quibbles -- micro-level decisions made about the room furnishings erred on the side of being pleasing to the eye over functional -- but really, I mean this is small stuff. For instance, the shower lacks a shelf on which to place soap/shampoo -- I'm thinking probably to avoid interrupting the marble walls. No coffee maker in the room, but the coffee the inn offers is pretty awful, so that is a bit of an exercise in endurance trying to get ready for the day first thing in the morning.
Overall, absolutely would return, especially as the town was SOOOO pretty, and the Parker River Wildlife Refuge down the road a real treat the next day.
