A lovely colonial-era hotel -- charming and comfortable. It is the opposite of a big corporate hotel. We stayed with our kids in two connecting rooms with a small terrace facing the pool. The gardens are beautiful and the open-air restaurant (not the Golden Spur steakhouse but the hotel restaurant) is very good with lots of fresh fruit, fish and good vegetarian options too. The staff was warm and welcoming. The rooms are not large but have everything you need, with excellent beds and showers. The rate includes breakfast and free wifi. The hotel is close to the national museum and major shopping. We really enjoyed our stay!
