    Fantastic place to stay for a getaway. Doesn't feel like you're at a hotel- more like you're in a small village. Lovely rooms with view of the courtyard. Staff was very friendly and very ready to do anything to make the stay the best!

    Visited with the American Legion Legislative Conference. Staff was very pleasant and professional. The Tavern was very relaxing and the food at the Sampson was delicious. I will be back and highly recommend this Desmond.
