The Waverley has a lot of personality and charm. The lobby is gorgeous and luxurious, with bonus amenities like a computer with printer available, and self-serve sweets and coffee/tea during the day. Our room on the second floor was elegant, with a huge, high King bed and beautiful linens. The bathroom had modern amenities, with a jacuzzi tub that we were disappointed not to use. I'm a light sleeper, and the double windows blocked out any sound from outside, and I didn't hear anything from within the hotel. Even the air-conditioner wasn't obnoxiously loud.
It was a bit sad to see what modern upgrades had done to the character (e.g. exposed sprinkler pipes, tv and bar fridge in the closet). The grand old lady must have been quite luxurious and posh in her day. She still retains her personality and elegance and sense of history.
Breakfast was simple, but there were decent hot and cold options.
The Inn is about a 10-minute walk from the main downtown attractions.
Definitely recommended, especially for those who appreciate character and history in architecture.
