Overall I would say this is a nice property. Staff at check in was very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size with two double beds. Good work area with 3'x5' desk and a great, adjustable chair. Comfortable bed. Room clean and well decorated.
Three items of note:
The light fixtures in bathroom are attractive from a decorator's viewpoint, but provide weak lighting for shaving, putting on makeup, etc. This is one area where I always prefer function over form.
The heating system was difficult to adjust to a comfortable temperature. I suggest that when entering the room you first press the off button (on the wall thermostat which controls the HVAC unit), and then press the button to turn on the heating or cooling and adjust the temperature up or down.
The wifi was pretty slow -- I guess you get what you pay for.
Overall we were pleased and will stay at this property again when in the area.
