They decided not to have anyone at the facility because of the Corona virus. For half the price the Courtyard a couple of blocks away maintains people on staff. The room was a bit cluttered and the arrangement of the furniture impractical. It also smelled. Showtime 2 was the only premium channel offered and there was no refrigerator in the room. Best features were the breakfast offerings and the comfortable ambiance of the lobby areas.

What a wonderful place!
We had an amazing stay at the Richard Johnston Inn. The building is beautiful and is furnished exquisitely! The staff are so friendly and helpful. Betsy made the most delicious cookies and recommended an excellent Italian restaurant Orofino's. Beth made a delicious breakfast. The location is excellent. You can easily walk to many historical places, shops and restaurants.

Even the Ghosts are friendly!
We had unknowingly booked a room without an ensuite bath and were offered an upgrade to a king bed with bath on the top floor at no additional charge. Very nice of them. Breakfast was great and everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful. They say that even the ghosts who reside there are friendly and although we didn't encounter any I can believe it.
