Bigger or prettier
Local area is really nice. Staff were kind & helpful in general. Lobby & restaurant is nicely decorated. But a room we stayed was so small. I was keep bumping into my husband every time I try to move. And decor of the room was rather plain compare to other areas of hotel. Maybe I got worse room in that hotel... I'm not sure but would not stay again, if I'm paying same amount again for same room. A room has to be bigger or decorated better for me to go back again.

Great hotel--warning the 'superior' rooms small
The room was terribly small -- not even a desk -- and there was no place to put my luggage. The common spaces in the hotel are outstanding and the staff was excellent overall. I would definitely stay here again, but get a larger room.
