I have been here for a week and a half and couldn't be happier. The place is in a perfect location, a very short walk to the action in town, 100 yards to the 30 bus that takes you right to the train station and trolley / bus hub (the stop across the street). Tip for those with mobility problems: to avoid the decent into town center take a left coming out of the hotel. You will see an elevator just behind the 30 bus stop on the same side of the street as the hotel. Push the city button and you are on the level with town. Take a left entering garage and walk straight to tunnel & through and you're there. I read a comment below about the breakfast, yes $30cf is more than I ever pay for breakfast but it's good, fresh and even McDonalds is 2x USA. I have room 311, basic room overlooking the courtyard. The window opens wide and I can hear the church bells in the distance. STAFF IS GREAT!
