This is a top quality hotel. It is so well decorated that it might as well be a museum. I enjoyed my stay there and this is where I will return every time that I am in town. The restaurant serves very good food too!

Currently Retro Suites has a Sunday special for all their rooms. The one we had was a great price and we were able to get a loft suite so all three of us could stay in the same room. We split the cost three ways which made it an economical trip for us. This included breakfast for two people so...
