We just stayed the few days before Christmas and had a very good experience. It rained alot and made the front door stick a bit but immediate assistance from both Ramon at the desk and Francisco in maintenance got the whole thing straightened out pronto! Nice room, very comfortable beds and easy access to State street was just the ticket. It is too far to walk, I had wanted to leave the car and just go, but it is pretty far north of the main action by about 6 blocks. Even with the holiday crowds, parking was not an issue in the public lots. A very nice stay and we would stay here again!
