Enjoyed my stay. Great location right on the plaza. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and prompt with assistance. I enjoyed the many dining and wine tasting choices nearby. There is a nice walking/bike path just east of the hotel. I enjoyed several walks through the lovely neighborhoods near the hotel also. Had great meals at Girl and the Fig, The Red Grape, The Sunflower Caffe and Mary’s Pizza. Great pastries at the Basque Boulangerie and Gelato at the Chocolate Cow. Wonderful visit.

Nice hotel, but you are paying for the location
Hotel is nice, but it just didn’t feel like a special experience. Location is great and the restaurant is really good. We really wished there had been a room service option, especially for breakfast. Overall, a very nice place, but for the price you kind of expect there to be a level of care and detail in the little things (for example, mop buckets left in the hallway, staff meals on the counter in the lobby). Also it is not a quiet hotel. We could hear the people in the rooms next to us and lots of Hallway noise. We had an ok experience, but I don’t know that we would come back.
