Stayed for one night in early November this year and had a wonderful stay in the Ketchum Suite. We arrived later in the evening (after dinner at Schuler's down the street) and were quickly and efficiently welcomed and shown to our room. As requested, a pack-n-play was waiting for our 1 year old daughter and although this is not the most modern pack-n-play out there (some assembly required) it was more than sufficient for the evening. The room was decorated (almost crowded) with interesting antiques (the 1830's cradle and antique steamer trunk were particularly interesting) and the main bathroom, although a bit cozy was very nice. Breakfast was wonderful and included fruit, a cherry breakfast tart, quiche, a waffle station, hard (maybe soft) boiled eggs and a variety of toast and cereals. The staff could not have been more welcoming to our daughter (she was treated like royalty, right up to the "antique" high chair at breakfast). Parents, please note that antique means no straps and breakfast would have been more challenging if she had been a little fidgety.
