Parking was easy and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We had a comfortable room on the 6th floor, nice and quiet and with a bay view. I liked the slightly old fashioned ambience and the historic photos on the walls. We didn't eat...More

When the usual staff for early Sunday morning breakfast were felled by various illnesses, Shelly was called in to the rescue and was totally wonderful. She whipped the whole room into shape very quickly, got everything going, coffee and food in rapid succession.
