3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
Everything was fine. It's an old and historic hotel so of course, you expect the quirks. It was odd that there was no information in the room (room service, checkout time, fire escape plan, etc.). When you book using 3rd party bookers you expect a less than stellar room / view. That was all fine until you wake up at 6am because your room smells like...I'm gonna say, fried Canadian bacon? and the A/C unit is blowing it in from the hotel kitchen venting below. Funnily enough, when I checked out, neither of the two people who processed it asked me how my stay was.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Was hoping for a relaxing getaway, found out that most of the hotel and all of the amenities (not many to start with but a restaurant and a bar) were off-limits to anyone else besides the wedding party. It would be nice to know that ahead of time so we could rearrange our travel plans. Super tiny room, even smaller bathroom. Uncomfortable squeaky bed, cheap pillows. Very unfriendly front desk. Will not be coming back.
