The long building was four stories with an attached stable. The kitchens were on one side and the upper room balconies were on the other. The rooms were tidy and clean. The front lobby hosted a small lounge where guests could meet citizens. Outside, the inn sign displayed a female hand clutching a lightly curved saber and several enchanted stars that twinkled softly. It was rumored the sign was plundered and purchased years ago from a raiding party in Amn.
The inn was fairly quiet and sold of drinks of moderate pricing. Meals were served in guests' rooms rather than a dining room and consisted of regular ale, bread, and fish. The bread could be ordered with cheese or melted eggs. On winter nights, the staff served ruby cordial, a sweet brew of cherries dissolved in sugared red wine.
The innkeeper, Aundegul Shawn, hired several guards to turn away street rogues and thugs from entering the establishment. They were especially on the lookout for dopplegangers, which posed a growing problem in Baldur's Gate around 1367 DR.
