          Like living in an art gallery- lots of lovely sitting areas, great location in the old part of the city where some colonial houses have been restored. Lovely staff. Sense of history; easy walking into the city. Tiny plunge pool if it gets too hot!

          I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
