Hotel in the cityThe Hotel Whitcomb is an older hotel so good if you are into retro and a historic feel. The room was serviceable no fridge, the curtains didn`t close, but it had a comfortable bed, good TV and shower, and a safe. Not a great family location.

      Clean and quaint older hotelThis is an older hotel with smaller rooms. By older, I mean it has one of those small elevators with a regular door not a sliding door!
