The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and again, the staff were very kind. The location of the hotel was perfect. Other than parking, this is a...

We really would have liked to have more time here. Loved the lobby with the bright, funky decor and fireplace. We went to dinner at the hotels restaurant. They made accommodations fast and the food was phenomenal. We really liked the candy in the lobby area too- nice touch!
