    We had an enjoyable stay in this classic hotel. A great downtown location. The renovations are nice and we had great service from the staff. Excellent coffee in the morning with a comfortable place by the fire to drink it.

    Feel of a budget boutique but attention to detail of a 4 star chain. Perfect option for those who aren't in their room a lot but want to feel refreshed when they do come back. The small details of maximizing room space were very clever.
