This hotel is located in a perfect location. The street is quiet, but it is only a block or two from all the best restaurants and shopping in the area. We stayed in the Carriage House and the bathroom had an outstanding jacuzzi tub. It was very relaxing. The free amenities are seemingly endless with a gourmet breakfast, happy hour with appetizers and delicious drinks. There was always a treat available. The staff is very welcoming and inviting, an important part of a Boutique Hotel stay. Although the hotel is over a 100 years old, it is well-kept. Absolutely loved it. Will stay again.
