    We stayed here for our friends’ birthday party. I was very happy with our room up on the 4th floor. I highly recommend staying here. The food was very good and all the staff we encountered were professional and friendly.

    Everything was efficiently run I was impressed with the number of staff working to make sure everything was done with smooth transitions. Only recommendation would be to have some one checking public restrooms more frequently.

    Stayed there for a weekend conference the weekend before thanksgiving. Location is right off the north way. Room was clean. Corridors were clean. Conference breakfasts were ok. Lunches and dinners were much better. Service in tavern was slow.
