This is an old place, quaint! They are trying to improve things and make a go of it. The staff is inexperienced but try to be helpful, especially the cleaning staff. Our room was bearable but not near worth the price. The bathroom only met minimal standards, hot water was at a minimum, the toilet ran, there was no shelving for toiletries, and the electrical system was archaic to say the least (light switch outside the bathroom and it turned off the wall recepticles).
There were no screens on the dirty windows in either the bath or sleeping room, wall hooks but no pictures carpeting and furniture okay. The closets were large and so was the room. The rooms in the South wing first floor are not accessible. You need to carry your bags up a small set of stairs to get to those 4 or 5 rooms.
Dinner was supposed to be spectacular here, new chef and all, and was above average but somewhat over priced. Breakfast included with the room was average and sort of makeshift. Coffee at breakfast was good, the food was okay but cool, never quite complete (If it comes with fruit, shouldn't it be more than one strawberry?) and service at breakfast, lackluster.
They may have a pool next year. One is there but not fully repaired at this time. They do give you access to a health club somewhere nearby. The grounds will be nice, if they get them improved some. Right now not so hot but there is potential.
One of the two owners (brothers) is usually there. The one from NY was there during our stay (delayed in leaving by hurricane Irene) and if you're lucky maybe the other one will be there, during your stay. I met Mr. Marriott while staying at one of his Los Angeles hotels a few years ago. He was much nicer, down to earth and less of a "know it all".
