Enjoyed this historic hotel very much! had a fantastic view overlooking the the park. This is an old hotel full of charm. It does not have a huge modern bathroom but rest of room was spacious. Staff was cordial. Main floor very grand! The location is excellent to explore this historic city. definitely recommended.

Room Tip: request a high room overlooking the park
