I stay downtown from time to time and the Craddock is the the only wa to go. Sometimes, like last week, I stay there just because I want the experience to be different. I echo the comments on the big, comfortable rooms, with nice fixtures, but I do wish there was some directable lighting in the room, especially on the bedpost like a lot of hotels now have. I don't like having to sit at the desk in room after all the hours at the office, too.
I tried the Greek pizza with chicken at the WaterStone restaurant and I thought it was the best pizza i have had in 20 years, or ever! That alone will bring me back soon.
It has lots of character and they simply do things differently and with flare. I too like the continental breakfast, but they have to switch to a croissant that actually tastes like a croissant should taste. it's one of the monster croissants that, in my opinion, is not flaky, quite dry and tasteless. It's not really a complaint, but a suggestion on something they could improve. The mini brie and the rasberry jam are nice ways to inject some flavor. Combined with a fruit cup, yogurt, and in-room, capsule-brew coffee, it's a nice start to the day.
I'll be back for sure, in the near future. Oh, and if you have not been to the Main Street Eatery (close by), this is ANOTHER reason to pick the Craddock on your visit to Lynchburg.
