Charming and homey
Posted Dec 2, 2015
This is an old hotel, and it totally lacks the 'frou-frou-decorated by your grumpy aunt who won't let you put your feet up" feel of a B&B. It's full of antiques, but they're approachable antiques. The rooms are high-ceilinged and welcoming. Although the bed was firm (like in all American hotels), there were more than enough pillows to compensate. Well lit outside, so that even late-comers like me could not possibly have qualms about parking or going up the back stairs to the room. And the breakfast in the morning -- which is included in the price -- omg, the finest Belgian-style waffle I've ever tasted, with hot maple syrup and the right amount of bacon. Maybe it's a bit pricy, but light-years above and beyond anything in the price range.
