Very Classy Hotel!!

This hotel was a real "find" . The staffing both the Hotel and the adjoining restaurant were so helpful and exhibited an exceptional sense of hospitality. They really contributed to a wonderful experience. The hotel was very inviting in its soft and warm decor. All of the facilities in the room and hotel were very clean and modern. The location of the hotel is so convenient to the city's historic sites and shopping . Really believe I received excellent value for my money. I will definitely return and. Am already telling my friends about what a delightful hotel experience I had here.
