First off, we did not stay here. We were wandering the area and thought we'd stop in for a drink. The bar was not open yet so we asked the wonderful woman at the front desk about the hotel. Well, she proceeded to get up and walk us all over the first floor and give us a history lesson about the house. The architecture is quite impressive with details down to the amazing castings on the door hinges. The history is amazing, especially when you consider that the hotel fell into disarray and was even a $5 a night hostel not that many years ago. Well worth a short stop if in the area not to mention that the bar is quite nice.
