The place was close to all places we needed to see. Breakfast was good with lots of selections. The only negative thing was parking was too expensive. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

We've booked a cheapest mini-suite, but got free upgrade and had a king sized bed. We had two TVs in different locations - to watch from sofa (huge one) or from bed (just big). Room was very clean, everything worked perfectly. We had a great breakfast for the current conditions - hot sandwich, boiled eggs, bagels with condiments, coffee, packed juice, etc. We were allowed to keep the car in the garage to pick it up afternoon. It was a great stay for us at very convenient location. Thank you to all the staff.
