Many "historic" hotels show their age; rickety "antique" furnishings, cranky plumbing, tired decor and less than pristine housekeeping - not so at the Weinhard Hotel!
The period furnishings are wonderful, the bed and pillows were very comfy; I was appreciative that I didn't have to smell previous guest odors within the pillows or linens, it happens so often even in chains these days and is really gross!
The bath was attractive with a floor of white hexagonal tile with a good showerhead and plenty of water pressure.
Our bedroom had a high ceiling with a drop ceiling fan, very nice wall trim and a useful good wooden window blind. There are plenty of lamps and light and a flat TV with every channel possible.
There was not an errant speck of dust, an unrepaired crack, a badly painted baseboard or soiled spot of carpet to be found.
I took a quick look-see the next morning on the 2nd floor and found the rest of the vacated rooms to be as pristine as ours.
A second floor garden terrace will be heaven in season with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and town.
The lobby (can I call it that)? is nicely furnished and there is a coffee/espresso bar open to the public opening onto the street. This also serves as the space where we were served a... very light.... "continental" breakfast.
The Weinhart evidences the love of the past and time spent by the first owners to remodel/convert it back to a hotel. The continuing care, love and expertise of the long time current owners, Shellie and Gary shine through in this lovely property.
P.S: We came for a fun Murder Mystery overnighter; Shellie and Gary put on a great time for all and are cooking up more events and reasons to come discover Dayton!
