We stayed in the Chamberlain House, the room/suite was very nice, and clean. It was disappointing that we were given a second floor room, when we asked for a first floor room. To be fair, the reservation was made through Expedia, and the rep said they called the hotel desk to

Disorganized and the wedding meal was served an hour late. Roast beef was ridiculously tough and fatty. Wait in line for ten minutes to get a drink at the understaffed bar. Premium rooms were well appointed but the dormitory was an awful choice.

Dear Jonathan, Thank you for taking the time to share your constructive feedback with us. We appreciate the opportunity to continually improve our services for future guests. It saddens us to hear that while you enjoyed the premium rooms, the rest of your experience did not meet your expectations or our standards. We apologize for the issues encountered with the meal and drinks, and we will use your comments to ensure this does not happen again in the future. Please consider returning so we can provide you with the excellent experience you deserve.

There is an outdoor pool that is probably open during daylight hours until it gets too cold to use. Call the front desk about refrigerators, new renovations probably brought new amenities. There is a YMCA in nearby Southbridge that would probably allow guest privileges at pool from 6AM-9PM
