Guest Reviews

Stayed at the Hotel Anthracite for the railroad Key, Lock and Lantern convention. The room was lovely, comfortable bed, great breakfast and dinners, very helpful staff. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

The stay at this hotel was prompted by a heavy snowfall that impacted my ability to return home after work. The entire experience was extremely pleasant especially considering the circumstances. The small lobby had a lovely warm fire which was certainly welcoming after a treacherous drive on icy and snowy unplowed roads. Parking was undercover so I knew I didn't have to look forward to cleaning the car again...See More
