This was one of the most unique hotels I've ever stayed in. The rooms were decorated with antiques and very elaborate styles. I took many pictures to share with family and friends. The atmosphere at the bar/lounge was good and the beer that is brewed on premise was very good.

Beautiful suite.Beautiful old hotel. My complaint , the night we stayed it was raining & maintenance left a ladder on the ground outside and I spent the night listening to the rain hitting off the ladder! Next morning we had room service delivered with no cutlery or condiments and cold toast!
