I booked this hotel due to it's proximity to a local business. What a nice surprise. First is the outside design, very European looking. A nice lobby with a very friendly staff. Next is a very nicely designed and appointed room. Again, very European boutique hotel feel to it (but larger).
Next was the restaurant/bar area. I asked to have my own bottle of wine opened (I wasn't sure they had a bar when I booked the room on line). Instead of the usual "we can't do that" the bar keeper was very gracious and offered to open it for no charge. I bought a drink and a small salad to eat at the bar. Martini was great and both were around $10, what a deal.
In this age of no smoking I asked if I could smoke a cigar outside. Again, very gracious YES.
Bar Keep offered me a glass to take outside for a glass of my wine.
Overall very nice hotel. All staff were very nice and helpful. Other than the salad I did not eat here but I heard the food is very good. All you can eat rib night on Thurs sounds great.
Also, No parking fee for a nice change.
Will definitely return when in town
