We checked in Monday, February 20 and checked out Tuesday, February 28. We were in town for an extended visit following a death in the family. We did not share the reason for our visit at the beginning. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful from our first night there. Over time, we mentioned the purpose of our visit to a few staff members. There were several times when staff members checked on us just to see how we were doing. One offered assistance finding local contacts for funeral related issues. The weekday breakfast hostess greeted us every morning she was there and made sure we had what we needed for breakfast each day. The coffee pots always held fresh coffee, no matter the hour, which was a huge bonus. We did have a couple of minor housekeeping issues over the week, but they took care of them very quickly.
We really felt like they were trying to help make this trip easier on us. The caring attitudes we experienced were a blessing.
