Historic Hotel close to RiverPosted Dec 28, 2014
Location: The proximity to Austyn's restaurant that I highly recommend was a plus and there are is the river and downtown shopping that is good.
The Riverboat era and decor ambiance were the main positives for this hotel. There was an old odor to the facility. Our room was on the street side and noisy til later in the night. Despite never turning on the heat the room was very warm The period style furniture was pleasing and the queen bed comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the dining staff for our generous complimentary breakfast was cheerful and engaging. The room cleanliness left something to be desired. There was an odor in the very small bathroom. The ceiling fan hadn't been cleaned in months and the carpet had grit on it like it hadn't been vacuumed. The water glass had a chip in it that could cut someone if not noticed. We like the alternative of bed and breakfast or historic renovated properties instead of the usual modern motels, but I would not stay there again unless I had a room in the back with a river view and the housekeeping improves.

Our room was clean but... wallpaper coming off, air conditioner cover didn't fit resulting in very cold air was blowing in over thermostat. Was 30 outside. Front desk staff helpful. Resturant staff not great, food ok.

Nice Historical LocationPosted Nov 24, 2014
Very nice historical hotel. Nice shops and dining right out the front door, as well as historical walkway and markers. Room was clean and nice although smaller than newer hotels. Priced very well. Business office was not functioning at time of my visit. Complementary breakfast was fantastic, and freshly cooked when you order.

We had a lovely view of a roof .The service was great .The carpeting needed cleaned . The sewer gas smell coming from the elevator shaft was sickening .The river view from the front of the hotel was wonderful .

Room along the riverPosted Nov 5, 2014
Pros: Atmosphere, views, class.
Cons: Pricing for basic rooms.
Location: The sightlines are beautiful if you're fortunate enough to be placed above the main corner. Front st also has several good bars/restaurants/shops
Personally my girlfriend and I both enjoy throwbacks in time, and that's exactly what this is. If you're looking for a large, modern room, this place is not for you. OR maybe you just need to upgrade your room. But if you like a refined albeit simplistic environment than this is your place. The furniture is antique'y but definitely of a higher quality. Throw open the windows and you'll feel like you're in a time long since passed, the views of the rising sun over the bridge and front street at night are both satisfying experiences, if you're into that sort of thing.... Breakfast was pleasant. And the front desk lady was very kind. Overall, I would recommend this place. My only complaint is the price. if they would drop the price for the basic rooms it would make more sense, because i felt like 80$ was a bit high for what you get, though i suppose i was paying for the "atmosphere."

Take a step back and enjoy historyPosted Nov 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Enjoed history of hotel Food/resturant areas good. Size of hotel huge. Its like being on an old passenger ship. Very elegant. Need to be aware this place is historic and therefore there are some things that are not possible to update. Im not sure its has handicapped accessibilty.

Went through Marietta on business. I appreciate the history behind the hotel, but I wouldn't advise staying there if you're under the age of 50. The floor boards creek, the beds wasn't particularly comfortable, kind of smelled like moth balls, and the AC unit in the window is pretty noisy. Not where you'd want to go if you are expecting a cookie cutter hotel.

Nostalgic old hotelPosted Oct 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
This a very old but well kept hotel ideally situated downtown. If you stay in a room on the streetfront side of the hotel, the vehicle traffic can be very loud.
