Wonderful location, great rooms, service with a smile. The restaurant had delicious food and great service. The staff from the valet to front desk and bartender/waiter/waitress were friendly, courteous and pleasant. Will definitely stay there again when I go back.

Response from Susan O | Reviewed this property |
There is no free parking for this hotel. I parked on the street (for free) and had to move the car by 08:00. The hotel has valet parking only, under the hotel, for $20 each night.
