    Excellent service! Porter went out of his way to drag our luggage two blocks to meet our cab who was unable to get closer because of dense pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

  • 6.0.Good

    Sitting area in lobby was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was plentiful. Staff friendly and helpful. Room was small and in need of some fresh paint. Air conditioner seemed to blow warm air. More comfortable with the window opened, but the streets got noisy, even at night.

    The staff was outstanding, helpful with dinner reservations, arranging a tour & transportation to the train station at the end of our stay. The only negative - my wife did not like the wall paper in the room - too busy for her.
