Hotel Overview

“Character by the bucketload at this long-time hotel (since 1890s), now owned by two charming Irishmen, Edward Bracken and Con Ring. Walls are plastered with over 5,000 paintings and prints, bedrooms (some small, all recently upgraded) are all different (a minstrel's gallery in one; secret panel in another; Judy Garland's bed in a third - she was a regular). Traditional sitting room for residents; buzzy Bistrot 190 open to all. Character here is preferred over luxury mod-cons.”
