Loved staying in this historical building but every time we showered we lost hot water several times each shower.

4/5 Good

I come here 4-5x/year. I try to get their cheapest rate, because it’s just overnight. I had room 228 this time. That room is directly over the front door, so it can get noisy ant time of day or night. But my biggest issue was that, even with the blinds closed, the nighttime outdoor fluorescent lighting makes it appear it is daylight outside. I’m grateful for the cheaper rate, but this room has not yet been renovated yet; window air conditioner! All in all, I’ll go back but will avoid room 228!
