This was my second stay at this hotel - my initial impressions continue to be confirmed. This is a lovley hotel in the heart of the city - beautifully appointed, without loosing the historical touches - Important point, lots of fluffy bath towels and great beds. They also serve very nice breakfasts. You can walk anywhere downtown from this hotel. The staff is welcoming and knowledgable about the events taking place there - from the races to the antique stores!!
