Stayed in the WG Irwin Suite on the top floor for 2 nights. Just awesome. So comfortable and grand. Pretty cool knowing I stayed in the room where Columbus the movie was shot. The room was spotlessly clean, as is the entire property.
The property is full of history, and original period furniture. It feels like you're stepping back in time with every room. We read books from the library and found Irwin family hotel receipts from a London trip in the mid 20's tucked into guidebooks from the time. Amazing.
Brittany makes a delightful and fulfilling breakfast and thoughtfully catered to my vegan diet. She also places wine in the library at 5pm to enjoy a glass with other guests or on your own, and she knows all about the history of the place.
In terms of location, it can't be beat. It's directly adjacent to the visitors centre where the Miller House and Architectural tours start, and you're in walking distance to the downtown restaurants and all the amazing architecture the city has to offer. The Gardens were being reno'd but they'll be amazing when they're all ready.
Two food and drinks tips would be Uplands Brewery, and Henry Social Club. Both top draw places to hang out!More
