"Not What I Expected."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
When I saw that this was a “boutique” hotel in a “historic” building, I wasn't expecting that to translate to no A/C, a 20” tube TV, no screens on the windows and a room barely larger than the bed. What's worse, our room was on the second floor facing the Main Street and even with the windows closed we could hear every single car that drove by and every conversation going on between the people walking on the sidewalk. There were stains on the carpeting, blinds that didn't close all the way (made worse by the streetlight right outside our window) and the soap, conditioner and tissue dispensers were all empty. The building was cute and the continental breakfast was good. Otherwise, not worth the price.

"Disappointed"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Welcoming when registered on Friday afternoon. The room decor was very pretty but the A/C did not work at all and the temp remained at 82 degrees all night. So stuffy that we opened the windows and the main door to get air to circulate the room Had a horrible nights sleep before attending an important wedding and am sick with bronchitis due to the air quality in the room. We left saturday morning and the desk attendant can use some more training on her customer service skills. ..very rude.
