My husband and I stayed here in September for 3 nights. Overall the hotel and service was very good. They had a very nice dining area for breakfast where you could could choose different items of the day that were freshly baked and prepared.
The decor and location of the hotel were also very nice.
one of the real drawbacks was the bed. We opted to get a queen room (which we normally do not get), It was much smaller than a normal queen size. We measured it and it was not a standard queen. We are not bigger people, just average-sized, but felt quite uncomfortable.
Also the hotel had three flights of steep stairs (which we normally would not have a problem with because we are hiking all the time), it was just a bit hard carrying cumbersome luggage up the stairs though and the staff was helpful and offered to help with our luggage, We had luggage for a two week trip to New England with us.
We, especially my husband, are well-traveled, and are fans of Starwood hotels. The closest Sheraton we saw was in Providence.
We really wanted to try a modern twist on a Bed and Breakfast. That is what we got.
My tip would be pay the extra money for a king room when going. We just had some bad luck.
I gave them 3.5 stars
