I had yet another running event and this time I decided to take my mother with me. My choice for Cecil was because my mother had memories there and it's a classic. Don't let the classic-ness fool you, the rooms are renovated, but the public facilities of the hotel still maintain the classiness. My only issue was the location. While it was *AMAZING* views, it's very close to the city center, and thus, the area is pretty crowded and loud, some times the crowd affects the view and the loudness starts early in the morning and stays till late night.
