I had seen reviews that mentioned that this hotel did not have airconditioning. I thought my husband and I were tough and we could handle it. I have never been that hot in my entire life!
Although the temperature was uncomfortable, the hotel itself was great. Our room was clean and inviting. The lobby had fresh coffee and tea every morning. The communal bathrooms were very clean. Get there early or there won't be a parking spot at the hotel!
The best feature of this hotel is that is is a short 5 minute walk to the Shakespeare festival!
