Older property in a prime location under new ownership and should be featured on an HGTV remodel design show. Marble basket weave tile in the bath, square shaped sink outside the shower room, marble shower walls, and Kholer fixtures. I like style, but I like function even better. We had both. HOT water on demand and plenty of it, a timer to turn on a heat fan in the ceiling for 5 - 60 minutes depending on how long it was needed, adequate ventilation, lots of soft towels, and quality toiletries (Archive). The A/C & heat unit on the outside wall worked quietly and was controlled by a thermostat that responded quickly to changes to the cool/ heat temp setting. The King bed was very comfortable except for the king size pillows that were not "fluffy". (I wish they had the softer fake down pillows that Hampton Inn uses, but I always bring my own feather pillows when I travel, so it wasn't an issue for me.) We enjoyed the balcony looking through trees to the main street below. 200 Main is half a block from downtown restaurants. Nice to park the car and walk where ever, and parking is a premium in Highlands especially on weekends. After a day of hiking to see many area waterfalls, we relaxed by swimming in the mineral salt water pool which had about 60 lounge chairs around it. I loved the mineral water pool, because swimming in chlorinated pools gives me a headache. They supplied fresh towels at the pool, and my husband and I had the pool to ourselves on a Tuesday night. We had a second floor king balcony with two *rocking* chairs! We enjoyed the Kuerig coffee maker in the room both for decaf at night and for a quick cup of coffee in the morning. I did wake up around 9:00 AM when a truck drove by, but main street is generally quiet in this mountain town, and there was no traffic noise after dark. Of course being on Main Street was part of the convenience and charm. The only thing that would have improved our stay was that the first morning we didn't know where to go for breakfast. We picked up our free coffee and packaged muffin in the lobby planning to eat a bigger breakfast in town but didn't know where to go even after consulting "Siri". I think it would be nice if the front desk had suggested Madison's for b'fast when we checked in and offered us a menu. It was in the hotel information booklet in the room but I discovered it too late. While there are numerous great restaurants in Highlands, not many places are open for b'fast. Only negative was that we had to wait 15 or 20 minutes to check out because there was only one person at the desk helping a lady that had some issue with her credit card that took that long to resolve. They don't have "fast check-out" the way they do at chain hotels, which would have been convenient as we didn't have any extras on our bill. Also, I liked the keys to the room which worked by waving them in front of the door lock instead of having to slide them into a slot. Just easier to manage the entry. I am very sensitive to smell, and everything was clean and fresh. Totally new materials in the flooring, carpet, furniture, etc. There was also a safe in the room that you could set your own PIN code and leave valuables in the room secure. Great WiFi connection. No Smoking. No Pets. Really will be the first place we call on our next visit to Highlands.
