Pros: Is in central city and lovely staff.
Cons: Room needed painting, carpet stretched, uneven (trip hazard) and lots of stains.
The hotel was full and had to wait 45mins in a queue to check in at 3pm. This would be known in advance and more staff should have been on.
Convenient location would be the only reason I would stay again.
A very enjoyable visit. Went to a league game and then checked in around 11 pm. Staff were very courteous. Slept in a bit as the curtains work very well. Went downstairs for a wonderful breakfast. Drove out to visit the kids and then back to hotel. A quick walk to the movies and then back to another comfortable nights sleep. Thanks
We were a bit unlucky in that on the second night of our two night stay there was a problem with the plumbing, and there was no available water for toilets, handbasin or shower.
We liked the room very much, and the whole atmosphere of the hotel, and would stay there again provided we could use the bathroom!
