Great location. They gym was actually good, with a lot of equipment, for a hotel.|Great service. Very friendly. I recommend the hotel breakfast buffet. |My maid service was really fantastic. He provided us with fresh flowers gratis. |Received a room upgrade when checking in. The upgraded room did not have a view but it had good light, and windows that let in fresh air, which we wouldn't have had with a basement room. ||Luxury hotel for a reasonable price; good value. |
