The central courtyard in this colonial-era mansion is certainly memorable, with lush vines tumbling down over stone arches. Other touches of note include a wrought-iron gate and leaded-glass windows. Each room is different, so look at a few before you decide; one thing they have in common are the extremely high ceilings.

Don't know if my room was like the others, but it was extremely disappointing. When I booked, in Nov 2004, it was $10 difference to Camino Real. The best $10 you'll ever spend. This is the kind place where your t.p. gets wet when you take a shower. Ask for a southern exposure -- that'll get you a curious look, since rooms don't seem to have windows! Skylights are a little iffy, ours had a hole in it. And those tile floors? Since when does linoleum
count as tile? Painting it like tile doesn't count. They put 4 stars up front on the sign. Clearly a sign it's self-assigned. Staff is really nice though, so maybe it's just a matter of asking for a better room.
