We spent two nights at the Kennedy School and thoroughly loved the uniqueness of the accomodation. Our son loved the black slate chalkboards in Miss Dobie's room. We had a queen bed and a roll away cot which was very comfortable. We stayed in a room in the main school as we wanted a room with character. The hotel also has a new addition with brand new rooms for those who want a more modern environment.
My son LOVED the afternoon movies that they show in the auditorium. If you stay at the hotel, you get admission to the show. The nice thing about the experience is that you can cozy down on a loveseat in this big auditorium and you can even order food which the servers bring to you during the movie. From popcorn to pints of beer, they aim to please.
If someone in your group is into smoking cigars, they have the "detention room" which is a little room that allows people to either purchase or bring their own cigars and cigarettes in to smoke. It is also a bar.
The hotel is a truly unique place and the experience is one of a kind. Beware if you are a tv addict as the rooms in the school part do not have tvs! Our only issue with the hotel was that some of the rooms do not have enough dresser drawer space to store your clothes during your stay. Hopefully they will eventually equip each room with this ammenity.
We would definitely stay here again! What a great way to repurpose a school.
