We were tempted by your prior reviews so I made reservations. We had had a long drive and were pulling our fishing kayak. The hotel and restaurant parking lot was jammed. A staff member who was going home gave us her space and the bell hop found a brick to hold the tire. Top that for a start. It is a remarkable historical hotel which must have been challenging restore. It is situated in the downtown Lynchburg which shows signs of a coming back to life. The last time we were through here the downtown was in sad shape. In fact, if we hadn't seen the reviews and the discount, we may have chosen another city. After getting settled in a very spacious and well appointed room with a large king size bed and huge walk-in shower. We found the shoebox and filled out our request for the continental breakfast and headed for dinner. It is somewhat of a jigsaw puzzle to get from the hotel to the restaurant next door but worth it. We wine and dined, found the way back to our room and fell sound asleep. We heard a train whistle once in a while. Since we love them, it did not disturb us. We are not fans of continental breakfasts but this one excelled. Thank you staff, one and all. We will back in the fall.
