Hotel was nice, clean and quiet. Valet is expensive ($50 ) but we parked a block away for $14 (SpotHero) and the gentlemen at the valet were very accommodating when loading and unloading. The restaurant (Louie Louie) has a lovely atmosphere but the food was lousy. Also, make a reservation (even though it seems dead early on) because it’s understaffed and it’s the only dinner establishment in the area and fills up quickly. They were turning people away while we were there.
