Surrounded by fancy molding and 10-foot-tall windows, the red-carpet lobby of this brick Victorian explains why the building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Rooms with dark-wood antique-reproduction furniture vary in size and setup: junior suites have sitting areas and either a wet bar or kitchenette with updated appliances; full suites have two queen beds, a Murphy bed, and a kitchen. All suites have a bidet in the bathroom and whirlpool bath. Standard
rooms are quite cramped and, frankly, out of date, though they were recarpeted last year. Continental breakfast, afternoon tea, and wine are served beneath a crystal chandelier in the lobby.
