The Cosmopolitan Hotel Review

With antique furniture, pull-chain toilets, and a veranda overlooking Old Town State Historic Park, the Cosmo offers guests a taste of Victorian-era living. In the late 1820s, early Peruvian settler Juan Bandini built what's now the oldest section as his residence, and a second story was added in the late 1860s. A $6.5 million restoration in 2010 restored the 1860s look. The amenities vary throughout. Some rooms have showers, others have claw-foot bathtubs; some have full closets, while others have wall hooks. The staff is well trained and eager to please. A complimentary breakfast of scones, homemade jam, and coffee is served on the veranda or in the dining room.
