Everyone we dealt with was courteous, efficient, helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable. The location is very convenient to the center of the city, within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and within a wide variety of restaurants. Breakfast was prompt and very good.

We chose Buswells because of its central location and we were not disappointed - it was very walkable to the attractions we were interested in. In addition, the hotel is well-maintained and the Buswells team is friendly and helpful.
