This place had the perfect location being near to public transportation, stores, multiple eating facilities and even walking distance to assorted sites. My 87yo Mother and I could not have chosen a better place to stay. If you want somewhere that isn't a "chain", is smaller and so much more friendly - treats you like royalty - then you should seriously consider the Brooks ! We arrived earlier than check-in so they had us stay in a cozy quiet guest area with free internet access - after a 9hr night trip it was a welcome place to unwind. The concierge service and front desk staff are exceptional taking care of you and suggesting outings - would return here in a heart beat. Oh, and the breakfast menu is out of this world . . . the staff even remembered some of our preferences!! The room and facilities very comfortable . . . we didn't really spend a lot of time just sitting in the room anyway, there was too much to explore and experience. I don't think we can say enough about the hotel, their staff, and how thankful we are to have had the opportunity to stay with them - it was luck picking a place that made our whole trip memorable.
