Love the look and feel of this place. Terrific service. Always friendly and helpful. The most comfortable beds are now in the rooms. Old world regal feel but with all the mod cons. Great gym too. I’m now a regular.

This hotel has nothing going for it. A mattress that should have been retired 10 years ago, exceptionally noisy plumbing, awful service. When asking for an extra blanket (in the middle of winter) I was told there was one in the bottom of the cupboard....More
