Where to begin with praise for this special, charming hotel? From the first few moments during check-in, I knew I had found a truly amazing spot. Tim and Billy, the front desk team when I arrived, immediately made me feel like a valued guest. During my stay, the graciousness continued, with assistance regarding directions, transportation and unique spots to try. The hotel itself is beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, from the smart lobby to the sleeping rooms, everything is beautifully appointed and comfortably elegant. The first floor of the hotel contains a lovely restaurant, however the real jewel here is the Reading Room, which serves a perfect continental breakfast; fresh squeezed juices, fruit, eggs, yogurt and breakfast breads. Coffee and cappuccino, as well as assorted teas are self serve, however the lovely dining staff are on hand to follow you to your table with an extra cup or plate. Service continues with a sumptuous wine and cheese service each evening, and while it's perfect for relaxing alone, I met a wonderful couple from Australia with whom I enjoyed seeing as we compared notes from our adventures of the day. Did I mention both the breakfast and evening reception are complimentary? They are, as well as turndown service and bottled water in your room each evening. The library is the perfect spot to explore the city; close enough to the action, but with just enough of a walk to feel as though you are returning home. If you are looking for a warm and hospitable respite from which you can explore all of the city, look no further than The Library.
