The room was nice but small. The staff for the most part was great. One bartender complained to us about being busy. The 4 course New Years evening wasn't great but room service sandwiches were amazing.

Nice bar, didn't try the restaurant but hopefully will next time. There is a spacious outdoor pool / spa nicely landscaped....

The beautiful historic building, friendly staff, and clean room made this one of the best experiences at a hotel I'd had in recent memory.

Mellissa gave us a private tour of the haunted spots of the hotel that was superb. My kids and I had such a good time, and her presentation was full of timely stories and pictures. What an amazing experience! Thank you
