Exceptional

Liked: Location, location, location! It was comfortable and clean. I didn?t have much interaction with the staff. Cleaning staff still in room as I entered upon check in so they were running late.
Disliked: Construction around the property - made traffic a bit more difficult. They also need to repair the fittings around a pipe in the bathroom. I liked the charm of it nevertheless.
