Nice suite (Ironwood Suite) with fridge, kitchen sink, some cupboards, paper towels, but no silverware or plates or pots or pans. Small kitchen table with two chairs. No desk but kitchen table works for that. Living area, couch, one reading lamp, coffee table, armoire. TV is not in living area, rather it is in the bedroom. Pretty quiet stay. When in living/dining/kitchen area, we could hear people in the hall. When in the bedroom, we heard no noise really. Even as close as we were to the elevator and ice machine, we heard no noise from either.
Front of hotel across street from Walgreens. Back of hotel with terrace, faces Lake Superior. Nice pool in basement, not too overpowering a chlorine smell. Fitness room accessed from pool deck. Fitness room equipment basic, the two machines I tried were a bit rickety. Breakfast is fairly standard.
This is a lovely, historic, grand hotel. The staff are more than friendly and helpful; they are amazing. We had requested in advance that no fragrances be sprayed in our room, since they give me headaches. Our room was scent-free, but each day the front-desk person asked me if everything was okay scent-wise with our room. She seemed to really care. And she gave us some great tips about things to see and do in Ashland. The manager told us some interesting history of the area. Other guests were very friendly, and one evening we had the best time sitting by the fireplace in the elegant parlor off the lobby with some guests from Minnesota. The back decks overlooking the lake are scenic spots to sit, too. And from the decks, you can access a walking path along the lake. less
