the front desk staff was so professional and pleasant, helping with adjustments to the reservation, discount tickets to area activities, showing us on maps the places we might like to visit and helping us know dinner options at nearby eateries. David, Anglea, Kaitlin, Jeff, Jason and Carina were all so attentive to each question and knew the answers....great service. Kathryn,...

Can't go wrong in the Tavern for drinks & dinner. The haddock never disappoints and Allison, the barkeep is always attentive and makes a perfect pomegranate martini. She makes us feel right at home. This is our go-to place for a fun & relaxing night out!

This is a gorgeous hotel. The staff are fantastic and the food is delicious. Upon arrival late night we were greated by friendly staff who were very helpful. The hotel has a charm about it but I'm sure somthing else lay beneath the surface. The elevator, halls and room are just creepy. Like somthing out of a strange old horror...

I have visited the Hawthorne Hotel many times. Allison, the bar tender in the Tavern is hands down, the best part of the experience. The food there is good as well, but Allison's friendly nature is tops. Her witty personality immediately puts you at ease, I am never left waiting or looking for anything. She is very attentive and really...

This hotel is beautifully and tastefully decorated. Our room was very nice and quite clean. There were more than enough towels and toiletries in the bathroom which is always appreciated. We ate in both restaurants-we had 2 dinners and 2 breakfasts here. The food is very good-a pleasant surprise! The service was also quite good. The location of the hotel...

This hotel is in a great spot, walking distance from all the attractions. It's a bit old, but has it's own charm. Staff were very friendly. Only spent a night and didn't eat there, so can't say much more.

No doubt this historic hotel is a lovely place to stay; I've only been there for lunch at the Hawthorne Tavern which occupies a corner of the ground floor. It, too, provides the visitor with a very pleasant, upscale, wood-paneled setting. The menu is somewhat ambitious and it executes some things rather well, for example, sweet potato fries, which would...
