This place was amazing. Kathy at the front desk was extremely helpful in getting us anything we need as well as helping us find places to go to surprise my mom for her birthday. The place was very clean and colorful and comfortable.
Each room had a decent sized bedroom with a little bathroom off to one side and a kitchen to the other. And here's my favorite part : a Keurig machine along with multiple choices for coffee! Kathy graciously put up with my requests for creamer. Everything was included in the price including multiple bottles of water every day.
There were tons of places we could walk to easily, including a great bagel spot for breakfast, Stargazer restaurant which was literally right outside the door, a farmer's market, and Towles Artist Colony for wine, cheese, and good times on the third Friday.
Maybe it was because there were actual tenants living in the same building, or the comfortableness of the staff, but I felt like a local while I was there. I highly recommend it.
