This is a beautiful hotel. The bathroom was recently renovated and was amazing. Our room was huge and comfortable. The fitness center was adequate, but we went around the corner to a wonderful YMCA. Expedia listed that there was an on-site guest laundry, but there wasn’t. We didn’t eat at the restaurants on site. I would definitely stay here again. This is a classy hotel with employees who are focused on customer service.

On one of the coldest days, we were told the boiler was not functioning properly. Our room was cold. By the next morning it had warmed up. The lounge bar & restaurant seemed understaffed, the service was slow.
