We were 2 moms and 5 kids in two rooms. Really appreciated the great location (central but never felt noisy). Really loved the service. All seemed really dedicated to providing a great experience. The outdoor spaces were lovely, relaxing. Great wine and cheese and breakfast. Rooms are basic, particularly the bathrooms. Wish there were more hooks or towel rack. Rust in some spots in bathroom were noted, but with the kindness and professionalism I saw in other aspects it was easy to overlook.
While there we enjoyed $1 Taco happy hour at the Sandtrap (so full from wine and cheese we went somewhere cheap and easy for kids). Great fresh lunch at Metropole (ate there two days in a row!). Also had fancy dinner at Il Portofino where staff treated our kid centric party with grace.
While the price was a stretch for us, I think I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Can't wait for another trip.
