On our first night we stayed here. From the Write Inn website- The Write Inn, a historical landmark, originally opened in 1926 as the Oak Park Manor. The architectural gem was the home to many literary figures, including Nobel Laureate & Pulitzer Prize winner, Ernest Hemingway and poet Vincent Starrett, who found the ambiance of the hotel an excellent atmosphere for writing and relaxing.
This place was originally an old flop house in the 20's. It is a fine old building, but as a place to stay we can't recommend it. Tiny , dark, uncomfortable rooms. A fellow traveller we shared an elevator ride with even remarked how the elevator was bigger that his room, we had to concur.
This is one half of our room, taken from standing on the far side of the bed which was billed as a queen but was a full. The bathroom which is located right at the foot of the bed with about a foot of clearance. And you had to step up about 10 inches into the bathroom.
Being an old building, it did have nice old touches
I was fascinated with the stairway, which was way faster than the elevator.
The Hemingway Museum is located just across the street.
