Chose this based on tripadvisor reviews. Service was EXCELLENT, from booking to help with luggage, to restaurant recs., one maintenance issue (fuse in kitchenette) addressed immediately, manager addressed one billing question immediately. Have never encountered a friendlier, more helpful staff. Within easy walking distance of many great restaurants, including Green Eggs for breakfast right across street. Room: choose back of hotel, quieter. Had King suite, worth it, very spacious. Impeccably clean. Fast wireless. Very comfortable beds. Anyone doing research, Library Company and HSP are literally right across the street. Large bathroom, good lighting, several full-length mirrors. No tub in the one I had and rather tight shower, but great water pressure. Only an issue if you are a very large person. Good little kitchenette with Keurig, mini-fridge, micro. in the suite. Plan to stay here again, for sure.
