This hotel may not be downtown but offers good accommodation with an interesting choice of local restaurants/eating places within walking distance. This was our fourth visit and we have never been dissatisfied. Great for all ages. Spent a great afternoon by the pool listening to cool jazz, eating and drinking - excellent service provided by the attentive friendly staff. Every room has a picture of a 30s/40s film star/celebrity.
