Stayed at the Marshall House several weeks ago when in town for a wedding. The hotel is perfectly located downtown and the lobby is historic and nicely done. Breakfast was nice, with three different choices of quiche, which were delicious. Our room was small, but charming with a comfortable bed and updated touches. The problem was the bathroom. I'm all for B&B quaintness, but the bath consisted of a pedestal sink with a narrow shelf over it, a toilet with a another two narrow shelves and a clawfoot tub. Clawfoot tubs are charming for BATHS, but this one had a jury-rigged arrangement where the shower head was attached to the side of the tub with a shower curtain on an oval hoop enveloping the whole contraption which was attached to the ceiling. Never mind that the showerhead was ridiculously low and useless for anyone over 5'5", the tub was so narrow that if you tried to turn around you risked slipping, and since the only thing you could grab onto was a flimsy shower curtain, good luck on breaking your fall. Add to that the fact that there was nowhere to put your soap and shampoo while showering, so you had to reach over to the sink, while balancing precariously in the tub, and grab your stuff from the adjacent shelf. I guess you could also put your supplies on the floor, but that seemed an even more dangerous option. Needless to say, showering was a comedy of errors. Add to that the fact that half of my toiletries ended up in the toilet when they careened off of the narrow ledge above due to the wind created while the door closed. I heard that some of the rooms had actual showers instead of the tub arrangement, so unless you're blinded by the "charm" of an old clawfoot tub, I'd request one of those. At $200 plus per night, they could do better on the comfort end.. Since clawfoot tubs are all the rage these days, the Marshall House should sell all of theirs and use the money to update their bathrooms!
