My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Gladstone in order to be in Jamestown for his mother's 90th birthday. We didn't arrive at the hotel until after 2am due to delayed flights and missed connections (thanks United). Even at that late time the front desk personnel were very friendly and quickly checked us in.
We stayed in the Lewis & Clark Suite, #249 I believe, which was large, clean and nicely decorated with a television in the living area and also in the bed area. The king size bed was very comfy with nice pillows. The bathroom was teensy with no place to set anything down, except on the back of the toilet, which was very annoying. Don't hotel designers ever think about all the stuff us girls bring with us? We also had an ironing board and iron, small fridge and a coffee maker. The cord on the coffee maker was so short the whole unit had to be set on the floor to plug it in!
Okay, all the above is livable, but the real reason I won't got back to the Gladstone is the NOISE. Read my lips: PAPER THIN WALLS. Having our neighbor leave his television running all night our first night (and you can bet we were tired after that trip) was bad enough, but the kids hit the indoor pool (which our room overlooked) by 8am and didn't stop screaming until 10 at night. We could clearly hear every single game of Marco Polo. We could also hear the people in the room next door, although they were talking in normal speaking voices. This is a shame because there really is nothing Gladstone can do about it except do a very expensive soundproofing remodel.
Hotel has a restaurant and bar, although when we wanted to meet up with family in the bar Sunday evening, it was closed. Didn't use the restaurant, but it looked very busy in the mornings so it must be okay.
So, in summary......the Gladstone is very nice, clean and well taken care of with a friendly, helpful staff. Stay there, but make absolutely sure you remember to pack your EAR PLUGS!
