This hotel that served guests during the Civil War has been nicely reodeled for guest comfort. My suite was very nice, but this does not seem to be a historic restoration. The lobby entry door looked to be taken from a modern tract home, for example.
Because it's an adaptation of an old hotel, the dimensions are odd. My rear-end bumped against the shower wall when I leaned over the sink to shave. I had to maintain good posture to sit on the commode because the dimensions were very tight. I actually had to call the front desk (on my cell phone - there are no guest room phones) to figure out how to activate the shower - it's a very subtle control ring on the tub faucet.
Do NOT take a guest room on the street unless urban streetscape noise is your friend. It's not mine. Street sweeper at 3:11 am, fire truck at 3:21 am, truck traffic starts at 4:30. Police car at 4:44. The Harleys had the courtesy to lay dormant until 6 am. I left the hotel's rear parking lot at 8 am and a trash truck blocked the alleyway to the street for 8 minutes, until I figured out how to escape through a neighboring parking lot that led to another street.
Wonderful staff. nice remodeling job, some nice special touches such as muffins and chocolate. Still, for me, the negatives outweighed the positives. I would never stay on the street side of this hotel again, and I might consider a quiet room on the alley side if I needed to stay in downtown Gettysburg.
