Great mother-daughter getaway

My mom and I stayed at this hotel to get away for a weekend, (and also to attend a wedding in the area). It was great! The rooms were clean and spacious, and the housekeeping staff was quick and courteous. The best part was their hot, made-to-order breakfast with all of the fixings. The kitchen staff were so kind and patient with my mom (who has an accent). I appreciated the location as well, it was not near a busy street so it was quiet! Another plus was that they living area and bedroom area were separated with an actual door! Whilst my mom was sleeping, I was watching movies in the other room. Another plus is that every room has a balcony, it was nice to peer out onto the skyline early in the morning and sip on some tea that was provided in the room. We really enjoyed our time! 10/10 would stay again!

That's Good Stuff

It was a little out of the way to get to, but it was worth it. The room was outstanding--better than I had expected. The price was very good. The restaurant across the street is perhaps one of the best I've been to. The staff from front desk to housekeeping was attentive. We had less-than-optimum wi-fi, but they said they were revamping the system, so that should be remedied soon. Couldn't have asked for more.

Nice hotel for parents

My parents came for a visit and wasn't sure what hotel to use. Utilized a travel website for some hotels to choose from. Spoke to my parents after and they were very happy with my final choice. They mentioned the rooms were clean and nice. They definitely expressed to stay there again! Thanks! #favoritedaughter
