Easy check in, clean room, excellent breakfast and relaxing happy hour. Made for an excellent 4 day stay. I will be staying there again. Valet parking and then a quick walk to the university made it an effortless week to attend business meetings at the University.

Quiet, comfortable,clean, professional/friendly staff, great breakfast, comfy beds. Wished I could have went to the wine and cheese tasting - was told the wine was worth it. Great to be able to walk to many shops and restaurants on Whyte from the hotel.
