"Our room was off street. That saud, the trolleys and the neighborhood are quiet at night."
"Victorian Suite was so beautiful. It has a separate sitting area and a spacious bathroom. "
"All of the rooms are great, most have private bathrooms. Consult the pictures on their website and choose whichever room(s) work for you. "
"Was able to go through all of them, Victorian Suite feels extra special."
"The original master bedroom is a must stay. There's a lovely private room off of it which is perfect for reading or work or relaxing."
