Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location just off 69 and access to galleries and pick-up from our favorite restaurants. I had issues with hotels.com trying to book two nights always flipped to one night stay so ended up paying for second night with the hotel ... a bit frustrating but a great stay and break.
