This is one of those things you do for your husband! Personally, I didn't get it, but he was grinning from ear-to-ear the entire time. The staff is friendly and service is efficient. We were fortunate enough to visit while their restaraunt was in full service. The menu was wonderful. We reserved their largest room - the Waite Phillips -- upstairs in the original hotel which included a smaller attached room suitable for a third person. The bath had a fabulous clawfooted tub. My only real complaint is that we were not aware of the room cooling situation---namely there is none! Probably not so bad in the spring or fall---but not really romantic in August! It is worth mentioning that they have added a string of modern-air conditioned rooms if you prefer.
P.S. the heat must have spooked the ghosts away for the evening!!
