Great holiday weekend break

We enjoyed two nights at this well situated, luxurious hotel a block from State Street over the Christmas vacation. Our room was large and comfortable and the staff were very accomodating. When we complained that our television wasn't working properly,we were given complimentary parking for our stay. A great staff and a wonderful hotel.

Nice hotel and downtown location

Great place to be before the holidays. Bar was busy and was difficult to get wait staff's attention but otherwise, the drinks and food were quite good. The room was perfect, the bed comfortable. Loved being near State Street. So easy to shop for last minute gifts.

Romantic Get-Away

Simply a gorgeous hotel, in the heart of downtown. We received a really good discount and were amazed by what our money bought us. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a romantic get-away. Loved the big canopied bed!
