Check-in is from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM or as otherwise arranged. Check-out is 11:00 AM.
Do you have free parking for overnight guests?
Yes. Free, lighted, street and off street parking await.
Should I ring the door bell when I arrive?
Because we may be on another floor and unable to hear the doorbell—when you arrive please call from your cell phone and we will meet you at the side door under the porte cochere (covering over the drive.) Exterior door and room keys will be provided at check-in.
Is there a curfew?
No. Your mother isn't here, so you can stay out as late as you like! Enjoy.
What should I wear?
Whatever makes you comfortable. Because Alton is a river town with people coming and going from their yachts and boats at the Alton Marina—you may go just about anywhere in shabby casual to dress.
Should I tip?
Tipping is not solicited or required. If however on your day of departure you would like to leave your chamber maid a tip for a job well done please feel free to do so. How much is customary? Although CNN Money recommends five dollars per room, that is entirely up to you.
When is breakfast served?
Self Serve Continental is available from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. each morning. Gourmet Breakfast in Bed (or the formal dining room) is served between 8:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Gourmet breakfast time will be arranged at check in.
Can you accommodate a restricted diet?
Yes, we will do our best to accommodate any special dietary needs including vegetarian, Atkins, South Beach, wheat and gluten free, low cholesterol, low sodium, and low fat.
Do you do weddings & receptions?
Absolutely. The BEALL MANSION is the perfect place for weddings and receptions from 2 to 100. Indoor and outdoor facilities are available.
