Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hotel is in a good location for walking in town, and had free underground parking. The bed was very comfortable. A couple of things could be improved - fresh towels are stored in the open on a shelf immediately beside the toilet (gross); would have preferred a coffee maker instead of an espresso maker (but thats just my preference).
