Staff and accommodations are excellent. One of IHG's better properties. Rooms are quiet and plenty of restaurants in the immediate area. Breakfast area is large and you have space to spread out. Looking forward to the next stay.

Clean rooms, great location for shopping and dining. Andrea at the front desk was more than helpful with everything we needed, answering questions and her bright personality was more than pleasant. The staff is very kind. Will stay here again next time I visit the area.
