Dating from 1892, this riverfront lodging tries hard to please even if it doesn't always hit the heights; nevertheless, it's a good option for those who want to be near the action of River Street. The two-bedroom loft suites are a definite thumbs-up. Bathrooms and kitchenettes are from the 1980s, but have been spiffed up. The decor is big on florals and patterns, with reproduction four-poster beds that give the place a homey feel. Meet other guests at the nightly wine-and-cheese reception.
