We were disappointed with the room - it was old and tired with marks all over the walls. Definitely not a 4 star hotel. Needs a renovation.

Close to the train station. But parking cost way to much. I hav been staying here for 17 years now and the parking price has got way out of hand. I parked on the street and saved $29 per night!
