Fodor's Review

A fascinating history makes these beautiful 1864 Victorian town houses an interesting as well as a comfortable and well located choice. Antiques-filled public areas have marble fireplaces, bay windows, and medallioned ceilings, and rooms have neoclassical, French country, or Victorian furniture alongside modern amenities. The former Morrison home, on the National Register of Historic Places, became noted in 1923 when the Women's Army and Navy League bought and converted

it into inexpensive lodgings for enlisted men while in town. First Lady Grace Coolidge attended the opening and other First Ladies and dignitaries have visited over the years. American cuisine with regional accents is served in the relaxed restaurant, with its outstanding wine list and patio.
