My husband and I stayed here on our engagement night, that was over 17 yeare ago. Since then we've stayed many more times by ourselves and with family. The Griswold is always fun.
We like the annex rooms across the street. The ones above the clothing store are newly remolded and bigger. The one above the coffe shop may be our favorite, the smell of fresh brewed coffee waking you up is always good. The rooms are charming each with their own character. The beds are comfy.
The Wine bar has a great selection and the best service. Ask for Enis, she takes great passion in knowing all about the wines. She is super.
You can't go wrong with the entertainment in the Tap Room. The sing-a-long live bands are awesome. Everyone is singing and dancing and truely having a great time.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. You can make rerservations on line or by phone, either option is very easy. We will return.
