My family and I booked a room at an affiliated hotel online that was in fact overbooked. The owners not only honored our deal but bumped us up to the Inn at 22 Jackson St's Turret Room. They usually don't allow children but were empty midweek in early summer. The turret room is in fact the whole 3rd floor, including 2 bedrooms (with a king in one and a queen in the other), a living room, and a roof deck. Plenty of space to put the kids to bed early and hang out and have some drinks. Plus, through it's affiliation to Congress Hall we got to use the pool and beach services. That meant no need to pack towels and beach chairs, which are provided. Altogether it was a great experience. I'm not sure it would have been possible though midsummer or in a better economy. We truly lucked out. But I would recommend the Congress Hall hotel group (which includes the Star Inn and Virginia Hotel) to anyone.
