Loved our stay !
Bianca checked us in for our stay, we were greeted with a warm smile and information about the property which was very useful. I love that the Bristol encourages people to reuse their own bottles as water refill stations are provided. The rooms were beautiful and the hotel was very clean. Loved the hotel and area, we will definitely be back !

Neat place, sweet deal
I really liked this hotel. It has a retro/modern/swanky vibe, but it isn’t over the top. The room was small but not tiny and my family of three fit just fine. There wasn’t a lot of storage space, so if we’d been staying more than one night and wanted to unpack, it may have been a problem, but for just an overnight stay, it was perfect. The breakfast is nowhere near gourmet or extravagant, but we got enough to eat. I was definitely impressed by the free coffee/latte/cappuccino barista machine and the free water bottle refill station. Great location near some good restaurants, too.
