Loved it

Our stay at the wheeler mansion was an amazing experience. Didn’t feel like a hotel, it was more like a get away vacation.

The building is exactly what you want it to be; a big old grandiose mansion. On the negative side however, the parking isn't obvious and it was almost impossible to understand the staff on the phone when I called and asked where to park. They charged me more than what Orbitz listed and when I asked them about it they blamed Orbitz and said they couldn't fix the price. Also, every chair in the building is horribly uncomfortable to sit in.

The restoration of this property is beautiful. So is the furniture. Our host, David, was very friendly and helpful. Our room with a fireplace was awesome. Everything was great. Celebrated 30 year anniversary with my wife.
