One of my favorite rooms out of 5 in which we stayed during nearly month long trip. Loved having comfortable chairs to sit in (besides lounging on bed), exterior door, windows we could leave open and a generously appointed kitchenette. Learned how to use a coffee press here! Hotel owner friendly and helpful! Very much appreciated the bottle of cream!...

The room was great - large and open concept. The location is great. The park is nearby, and lots of food and shopping are within walking distance. The bed was large and comfortable, and the room was clean.
