The hotel itself is a very nice quaint and historic hotel. If you are looking for a large modern luxurious room, then this isn’t your place. However, the hotel does have a lot of character. Wiggins Tavern is really good and you feel like you are in an old and historic tavern. I highly recommend.
The city is full of shops and restaurants. While the hotel is historic and quaint, the city is more young and trendy. That could be good or bad depending on what you are looking for. Great restaurants, but not so great at midnight when the drunks leave the bar and start making noise.
I was unfortunate to stay on the street-side of the hotel and this really was a deal breaker for me. It’s a busy street and you could hear every car go by. Every truck. Every bus. You get a little break, then the busses and garbage trucks start going in the morning.
One night there was a concert across the street. The music was loud. It ended at midnight and a drunken couple starts a screaming match where the police had to show up. I got a couple hours of rest and then another drunk fight outside around 3:00 am…a couple of hours of rest until the busses, street sweepers and garbage trucks start up around 5:00 am.
They need to figure out how to put in some soundproofing. The walls are paper thin. The windows are no better. So you hear everything going on outside. If they want you to stay on the street side of the hotel, just walk away!
