Very Good 8.0
Cleanliness
We stayed 3 nights. The first day, maid service wasn't good at all. Dirty cups left, empty tissue box not filled and tea bags not replenished. We asked for what we needed for the rest of our stay and skipped maid service.

Wonderful stay with my new high school graduate
We had a great time in this hotel . The location relative to sightseeing is awesome . The hop on hop off busses leave across the street . Small cafes , a supermarket all close . The hotel has an amazing breakfast so book this one with breakfast included ! The hotels has a great gym and pool which is unusual in the area . The concierge was so helpful I wish I could have taken him home . The restaurant in the hotel has a lovely 2 or 3 course early dinner menu which is excellent .. very safe neighborhood so my son could explore on his own and there is a small mountain and lively public wilderness area just next to the block . Perfect for runners or people who need some green time in the city .

Great hotel in quiet street
The hotel is great with the wonderful rooms. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom spacious. It is a little bit far from the main attractions but is is a quiet street. However, there is a small supermarket nearby, lots of pubs and restaurants nearby, Including vegan options.
