I found the rooms small, no where to put your bags when more than 1 person staying in the room. The staff were excellent.

Great location. Room was very nice and plenty of space for an inner city hotel. The only issue is the shower was weak and difficult to get the right temperature.

The location was perfect, the hotel is charming and the staff are helpful and friendly. As this was personal travel, it worked well for me. I did have some problems with concierge delays. He was very busy and there was no real back-up. Access to food within the hotel is very limited and this could be an issue if travelling professionally. All in all, though, I would return.
