We did a 3 week road trip across the whole length of America, and this place had just about the best staff of any hotel we stayed in. Receptionists chatted to us on arrival and made us feel really welcome. One of them even called once we were settled into our room to make sure we had everything we needed. Concierge was helpful and gave great advice. Fitness room was decent enough, running machines, dumbells, the usual hotel gym.
Location is perfect, in a safe area and just a few minutes' walk from some fantastic bars and restaurants.
Room was fine, no complaints at all. The real star of this place is the barman, John. He was so genuinely friendly (don't think he churned out the stock "have a nice day" once!), it was great just chatting to him about everything from sport to American history.
The breakfast room is way too small and cramped, but I'm not going to take a point off because the staff worked so hard to keep the food and (decent) coffee topped up. We're fairly reserved Brits, not the kind who become best buddies with every member of staff we meet in every place we stay, but I really can't say enough about how great the staff here are.
