My husband and I wanted a small getaway for our honeymoon and decided upon this hotel. I don't have any major complaints about this hotel, but I would stay elsewhere if I went to Rhode Island. The weekday rates are average about $150 dollars but the weekend rates are $250 a day! We were originally going to treat ourselves and stay through Saturday, but changed our minds. The major gripe about this hotel is the lack of ammenities for the price. No exercise room, little to no food service (you clean up after yourself at the continental breakfast), no room service and no one offered to help us with our bags (which we would decline if offered, but the gesture would have been nice). The history of the building is nice enough, but my husband and I both noted that the interior was ultra-modern. It lacked the charm of the surrounding area. Furniture is very minimalistic and I definitely agree that the air conditioning was basically non-existent. Again, that's something you expect when your paying $300 dollars for two nights stay. The hotel had seen better days too. We walked down the side staircase and saw extensive water damage to the ceilings, faulty wiring, junction boxes dangling from the ceiling (f.y.i. my husband is an electrical engineer) and that same hallway was used as storage area. Meaning the maids cart was there as well as large pictures that were propped against the walls, broken furniture as well as roll away beds and strollers, exposed styrofoam insulation tucked in the ceiling and also boxes. Aside from the hotel price, the reason we decided to cut our trip short was that most shops and even restaurants closed at 5-6pm! I'd recommend the area as a day trip, maybe to see the mansions and take pictures of the ocean but not for much else.
