    Due to covid there is no room service and had to call to get more towels. It would be nice if they provided you with some extra in the room based on the number of nights you stay. There is also no place to get coffee in the morning inside the hotel. They provide an instant coffee device in the room, but again only two cups so you have to call down when you need more. A beautiful hotel that’s adjusting to covid rules.

    For the price ($200 for one night) we were very disappointed. We were expecting a little luxury and the rooms, furniture, and bathrooms were extremely dated. The curtains were stained and had holes, the furniture and upholstery was worn. It looked like nothing had been updated since the 90s. If the cost were lower or this were a budget hotel it would have been fine but we were trying to have a nice night in an historic luxury hotel.

    A little disappointed

    Old & tired and restaurant closed. Whole place felt very empty and a little odd. But really nice big rooms. Good value for the price but almost felt like it was going to be going out of business - very little staff etc
