          Excellent service from the entire staff; great location yet very quiet. Great breakfast; wonderful restuarant with gourmet food. All amenities-firm bed, spotlessly clean. I especially enjoyed the ironing room. I would return to this hotel.

          I booked directly with the hotel and did so at the "breakfast included" rate. As I recall that was a better deal than buying breakfast there. Breakfast was very good and in a very nice room.
