Very new, very modern & convenient to central city. Comfortable stay, but quirky rooms & baths. Relatively spacious room, very clean, but no luggage rack & no place for suitcase except on the floor. Bathroom was also very clean, modern & spacious, but if the door was left open after taking a shower, it may set off the smoke/ fire alarm (notice posted on wall in bathroom advising that door cannot be propped open due to this). No electric vent in the bathroom, so bathroom remains steamy for awhile. New bath & shower w/ great water pressure, but no place to put shampoo bottles except on floor of shower. Other reviewer mentions noisy doors, and we agree, & it was annoying. All of these complaints are minor though, & would definitely return.
Try the baked eggs- very different from any other B&B breakfast we've had.
And agree with other reviewer - stars go to staff. They were the absolute best we've encountered, and nothing was too much trouble for them.
