Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I was just disappointed that with windows on two sides of the building, we only had views of the back alleys, giving us very little natural light.

Staff was very friendly. Room was clean with great view. Breakfast was great! I loved the security of side doors needing room key to enter.
