Hotel is nice - parking is an issue - but you can valet your vehicle. The restaurant has a creative menu and the food was superb but it was a bit pricey.

Being in a downtown location, parking sometimes gets a bit tight. This is why we offer our valet service so you have the options of utilizing either.

My daughter and I just shared a delicious dinner of many small plates tonight. All four vegetarian dishes that we chose were really good, flavorful, and well-presented. Our server was welcoming and kind.
