We learned that pets are only allowed on the ground floor. Marianna, the desk clerk, said she was booked up on the first floor, but upon further review and... More

The bed was huge, nice, relaxing chair, large desk with room for both of our computers, refrigerator with great size freezer, very small bathroom and plenty of space for clothes, if you were unpacking (which we didn't), walking distance to several restaurants, continental breakfast included.
