    Hotel was better than we expected in a college town, clean and nicely decorated. Our room was very pleasant and well appointed. The employees were very helpful. Our Hotel Kensington stay was extremely enjoyable.

    We stayed the night prior to my daughter having surgery. Hotel was clean and decor was classy. Staff was friendly and kind. Pool is very large with nice gym, hot tub and sauna. Our stay was short but very nice.
