just returned from a long weekend at the hotel
the hotel really looks nice and is in a great location-would like to return to the area in the summer season but not sure I would stay here again-see below for the good and the bad
booked a one bedroom ocean view room on the 4th floor-view was great and room was nicely furnished and bedding was nice as well-now for the bad-windows must be super old as all nigh the wind howled through them-also when the heat turns on and off it is super loud and runs loud as well-they need to winterize the windows or replace them-since the floors are not even(old hotel) there is a 2-4" open space by the door so all of the hallway noise is right in your room with you-the secondary door is just for decoration as it keeps no noise out-they need to put some rubber etc... on the bottom to eliminate some of the noise or replace the doors-if you are at all sensitive about noise don't stay here as you will be miserable for sure -it is too bad because it ruins the charm of the property-I felt like I was back in college with all of the noises that could be heard. The fitness center is a joke as well so don't plan on working out here during your stay either.
as for as things I enjoyed during my stay-drinks at the brown room-very comfortable and relaxing there-ate at the blue pig a few times-meals were good and so was the service-also went to the Ebbitt room at the Virigina for dinner-very good but on the expensive side-about $200 per couple but it was worth it
I got a good rate since it is the offseason but if I paid a full summer season rate I would have been extremely upset because of the noise situation -as it was we thought about leaving even though the rate was a good one
