The rooms and staff are ok. Great central location. Good breakfast. Can get noisy due to bar downstairs. We were also unlucky that a bunch of drunks pulled the fire alarm and sprayed the hallway outside our room with a fire extinguisher at around 3: 00 a.m.

Although not exactly designed for family's I have to admit the staff are one of the friendliest I have ever dealt with.
