Does HotelsByCity recommend this hotel?
This is a wonderful hotel with lots of space, both in the public areas and in the guestrooms. Despite its size many guests said there was a homey, friendly atmosphere and the top notch crew of workers provided polite and professional service. There were some minor moans about the high rates. Despite this many visitors said they would stay at this hotel again and had no hesitation in recommending the property to fellow travelers. Words of advice from those who have stayed here: Priority Club members get breakfast for free. So if you are not a member, and plan to stay here, sign up before you go. There is no charge.
