not worth the $$
This place was a recommendation to us as a romantic getaway. I should have checked in to it more. Upon check-in, we had told the valet we wanted to just freshen up as we were headed back out for a dinner reservation in 30 minutes and asked how much notice we needed to give him. he says 5 min, but he will keep the car in front for us since we are leaving so soon and keep an eye on it in case the police want it moved. We get to our "suite" and there are no towels to be found. I call the front desk and am told they will be brought up immediately. 20 minutes later I went down the stairs and the valet and clerk were chatting and saw me and suddenly jumped and the valet said "oh, I need to get you towels, be right there." I told him I would go with him... he then gives me one towel and informs me that laundry has not been done and he would have to take towels from another room (we checked in at 4:30pm)... then 10 min later we could not find him so we could get our keys so we could leave to make our dinner date.. he was in the front shop talking with the girl behind the counter.... We had a balcony suite on the front of the hotel. We could literally hear the glasses clinking and silverware on plates at the restaurants outside and below our suite as well as people talking. It was as though the windows and doors were open... but they were not, it is just that you can hear people in the next room talking... paper thin walls!!!! The Amtrak runs right behind the hotel and runs all night... you can hear the wheels squeal on the tracks and the horn that seems to go on forever. I got very little sleep. Our 2nd morning there and our last, we were discussing whether or not to go out to breakfast or order the complimentary scones and coffee when suddenly there is a knock and the deadbolt opens as housekeeping begins to enter our room... they had been told we had checked out. When we end up checking out 1/2hr later and I tell the clerk, he asked us if we wanted it brought to our room... WHAT??? We are checking out now! Our suite didn't even have a table inside the suite (only the balcony which is shared with all the other guests... in the rain, not so fun) so that we would be able to order food and eat in our room... there are zero amenities.. nothing other than valet parking. I still can not figure out what we paid $220.night for. There are shops and places to eat right outside the door... but honestly, I feel cheated and ripped off and the only thing I got for it was "sorry you were disturbed". The room was clean and old and beautiful... classic.
