Fodor's Review

Surrounded by key historic sites as well as many nightlife options, this five-story Best Western hotel is within walking distance of just about everything you need. Built in 1856, it has been run as a hotel since 1988. The high-ceiling guest rooms have a few period touches; some also have modern conveniences like docks for your MP3 player. Deluxe rooms have parlors and king-size beds. Complimentary continental breakfast is served in a glass atrium, and afternoon tea and freshly baked cookies are available in the lobby. A complimentary wine and cheese reception is held every Wednesday at 5:30.
