The room was old...single pane windows directly over the street, so very noisy. The hotel offers no parking...I suggest the indoor lot across the street, parking is free from 6PM to 8AM.

Location was nice and hotel atmosphere was pretty. Staff was rude. When I told her I called the hotel after making my reservations to request a tub I was told that even though there were notes for a bathtub in my reservation that because i didn't book directly through the hotel those who did regardless of booking time had first choice. I was also told the room type I booked doesn't have bathtubs. I told her the website said they did I was then told the hotel was completely booked. 30 minutes later I was told a room just became available with a tub. I could move jnto that room or receive a $20 refund.
