This hotel was a delight. Exceptionally priced and extremely friendly. A special shout out to Denver who was very friendly. Rooms were clean and bright and we got upgraded to a room with air conditioning without any extra charge. Will recommend this hotel highly to my friends.

Very nice hotel, good location. It is not very far from the center. The restaurant and Reception staff were excellent. Papardelle pasta was very taste. The only problem was that there was no cocktails, but not a big issue. The parking was a big plus. I would definitely come back.
