From the moment we entered 256 located on the second floor, we were awe struck by the view captured through expansive windows. We felt like we were on a cruise ship. The friendly atmosphere of staff and repeat visitors quickly became contagious. While the building may appear dated it is well kept up. The living area is open and comfortably spacious.with a well equipped kitchen. Our family of five was very comfortably accommodated with two full size beds in the bedroom and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living area. Cleaning and linen service was excellent. This is a a definite "come back soon"!!
