The hotel was in a perfect location. Your porter, Daniele was very helpful and friendly. We had an issue with getting our rental car back to the airport lot and Daniele made arrangements for us that saved us a lot of time. He was also very helpful with the local area. Please pass on a big thank you to Daniele.
