Well priced hotel an uber away from gaslampReally enjoyed my 1 night stay at this hotel. The room was excellent for the price and I was checked in very quickly despite a short delay while the room was prepared. I was given free parking for the inconvenience which was a nice touch and greatly appreciated.
