I stayed the end of September for a night as attending a funeral. I parked in the back lot, close to the covered entrance which was handy as it was raining. Check in was quick and efficient. I booked a large queen room, based on past reviews and was in the Schoolyard? room on the top floor. I thought the room was charming, with a four poster queen bed, desk and chair facing the window, vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan, two dressers, a flat screen tv, and closet. The bathroom was updated and way nicer than I expected. The room was clean. Due to the age of the hotel, the sound was loud from the outside, but when I turned the fan on the AC unit, it drowned out all noise, which worked for me. The bed and linens were comfortable. I chose the hotel for it's location, along with the history, and loved the ability to peruse the shops on main street and had a great espresso/oatmeal at a coffee shop a few blocks down from the hotel. I was there on a Thursday, and the bar downstairs had a great musician playing, a diverse crowd and great beer selection on tap, with free snack mix and nice earthy ambiance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Archer House River Inn occupies more than a central location in Northfield. For generations of guests and locals, it IS Northfield - a geographical and architectural landmark, a host to history for nearly 140 years, and an exemplar of the town's spirit of hospitality. Built in the French Second Empire style, the four-story red brick building is grand in design, rich in character, and impressive in its amenities - which include two full-service restaurants, a coffee shop, riverside lounge, conference space and more. Yet with just 36 rooms, no two of which are identical, the inn is intimate in scale and unique in feel. The Archer House also boasts the city's best location, straddling the town's main thoroughfare and the Cannon River. Beyond its prominent setting and venerable history, something else makes the Archer House special: a spirit reflected by the staff's pride in upholding a 140-year legacy of caring for guests, and the ownership's loving stewardship of a property that embodies the heart and soul of Northfield. ... more less
