This National Register of Historic Places hotel was built in 1832, which is good news/bad news. It has been fairly well maintained w/in the constraints of the designation. Not surprisingly, the A/C is really poor and very noisy, the rooms are tiny, really tiny, but it has a great location right on the Hudson River at one of the most picturesque viewing sites imaginable.
The rooms are the smallest I have stayed in, except for an ashram in central India. The walkway around the bed is the smallest I have ever seen and there is just NO other space except in the bathroom or the closet. Housekeeping was not good - there was a condom wrapper and a script for a play "The Champ" (not kidding, really...) under the bed. The downstairs outside door was not secure as it could not be closed to latching from the inside. The room "value" was low. There is WiFi only on first floor near the restaurant.
The restaurant is very good; the crabcakes and the CA avocado/turkey sandwich were exceptional. Bkfst was "healthy omelette" which was very good.More
