I would highly recommend this hotel and would go back for sure. Great location within walking distance of many good restaurants and attractions. Offers onsite parking for no cost.

Liked: Friendly, attentive service; comfy pillow top beds with good pillows; great shower with good water pressure and large shower head. Restaurant staff was great very helpful and attentive.
Disliked: Room A/C didn't seem to cool as good as the hall units but still comfortable temperatures.


Disappointing - 2 out of 5

Overall I did not think...

Liked: Location was fantastic. Very walkable to everything that we wanted to see and to great restaurants and shopping. At the least it was a short drive. Also really loved the work out facility / gym that was connected to the hotel. Cute common area and nice bar and restaurant.
Disliked: The floors were dirty when we arrived. Dust bunnies accumulating in the corners and the base boards had a build up of dirt. Under the beds were particularly bad with dirt and dust bunnies (I always check before I leave, in case I kicked something under there). On our second day there we left the hotel about 11 am and returned at 10 pm at night and we were exhausted and looking forward to a hot shower and clean beds to climb into but house keeping never came to our room at all. So the beds were unmade, the towels wet and dirty. and dirty wine glasses remained besides the beds.

Great location

Liked: - parking - beautiful building - cheese and wine afternoons hosted in the bar (free of charge/ included with the cost of your room!) - proximity to attractions
Disliked: The walls were super thin and I heard the gentleman next door snoring throughout the night and talking on the phone in the morning (I could hear every word he said). Presumably it's an old building, so doubt there is much that they can do about this... and , I guess you .ca be lucky or unlucky about your neighbour
