History, hospitality and comfort.
We had a spacious, very clean and well appointed room with a very comfortable bed. We loved the "old world" feeling of the antiqe oak furnishings as well as the original art. Help was covid safe but very available. Welcoming and warm. Would certainly stay there again. If the word "plastic" sums up what you want to avoid, this is your kind of hotel.

Nice room, the bed a little uncomfortable, light came in under the door from hallway which I blocked to make the room darker for sleeping. Although you were having restrictions due to Covid-19, I still think having someone greet guests at the front desk would have been a nice gesture instead of self check in; maybe consider a Keurig or other coffee pot in the room instead of having to go downstairs for coffee, a little more selection for continental breakfast would be good (however the scones were tasty!). My husband and I will definitely stay here again.

Perfectly located, okay interior.
Perfect location. Room was a bit weird because they added in some new cheap cabinets that didn’t fit the historic theme of the hotel. I am glad we stayed here instead of a chain hotel though.
