I was promptly met at the door and my care taken, and the front desk person listened to my request, and upgraded me to the HP Lovecraft suite which was fun.

This hotel is beautiful. It is not big so you are not just s room number. Staff is very attentive when you need them to be. The restaurant in the hotel is also amazing. We go here every time just to get away for the night. Worth every penny.
