10/10 Exceptional

Spacious, Clean and Comfortable
The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, attentive and hard working. The room we got was too close to main lobby/breakfast room/elevator. It was loud at times, hard to stay asleep. It was great walking distance to great restaurants like 1865. Yum! The shower was amazing! They have everything you need in room... Microwave/Refridgerator/great mirror in bathroom with good lighting for makeup. TV needs upgrading. Smart TV would be better. Also, there was some drilling or construction work that was happening. If you were a longer term guest, you couldnt sleep in with that noise. We had to check out so it was fine, but someone who got in late and wanted to sleep passed 10am, the noise would have woken you up! Otherwise, a lovely stay. I'd stay again and just ask for a different room AWAY from all the noise of the main entrance!
