The hotel is beautiful on the outside. Inside, it has great potential. In agreement with another reviewer, while not expecting "elegance", I would have settled for "not smelly." The ceiling in the entry was leaking badly...what can staff do except add a mop bucket? Carpet was so very worn and soiled. We made our reservation at the last minute, so perhaps the best rooms were already booked, but ours was tired. The bed was really soft and the wallpaper was indescribably ugly...not the old, historic kind, just old. On a brighter note, the staff was very nice, the restaurant was affordable, the food was okay, and the breakfast was lovely. Did I mention the outside of the hotel is beautiful?
