I couldn't rave any more about this hotel. I found it on hotels.com, and it was simply a dream come true!
1. friendly personnel - there is a helpful, courteous and responsive person at the front desk 24/7;
2. convenient location - this small hotel is located within a short walk of any place you want to be within the city; it is the perfect base; and
3. ideal - the hotel is affordable, clean, and well-appointed!
The larger chain hotels are situated outside of the city (tourist) center. Therefore, the location of the RRH is plum! We were able to walk to/from old harbor for our cruises and Gray Line for transport to/from the airport. In fact, the location is so ideal that it is ridiculous! There is no necessity to drive within this part of the city that tourists want to explore.
The hotel is a historic building that has been updated. It is comfortable and has welcoming amenities. From the cozy seating area across the front desk, the computer bank with tourist information and brochures, to the well-provisioned kitchenette with complimentary breakfast items and beverages. [Alcoholic beverages come with a reasonable charge.]
Our room kitchenette was supplied with dishes and silverware, a small stove top with pans, a coffee maker and really anything a kitchenette should be stocked with.
There is a table/seating area, and also a day-bed-type chair across the bed. [Mind you, the other rooms may have different layouts depending on the bed size and square footage available.] Our room came with two beds on the main floor, facing the street. I was a bit concerned that the street would be noisy; it was not.
All-in-all, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place and would stay here again in a heartbeat!
