This was a very middle of the road, clean, comfortable hotel with very friendly staff. It wasn’t anything special but it was certainly adequate. I wish it had been a little closer to the downtown area.
We stayed here for a week and enjoyed the hotel very much. It was at the end of the busy downtown location but well within walking distance. The hotel staff was exceptional, especially Jacob the concierge. Lots of great tips on sites for see and places to eat.
The restaurant, while a bit pricey, was outstanding. Breakfast was around $30 for 2 people each morning. But this included too much food for us to eat. A shame really...
Dinner was also pricey, entrees were around $35-45 per person. We opted for the price fixe menu one night and it was well worth it. Again, too much food. My husband asked if he could have his fruit dessert with breakfast the next day and they accommodated that with no issue at all.
