The Red Lion Inn Review

An inn since 1773, the Red Lion has hosted presidents, senators, and other celebrities, and consists of a large main building and nine annexes. Each is different—one is a converted fire station—so if you like historic buildings filled with antiques, request a room in the main building (many are small, but the ambience is authentic). If you want more space and modern furnishings, request a room in one of the annexes. There are three dining options, but all are overpriced.
