This hotel was probably nice pre WW2. Looks old from the outside and feels older inside. The bedroom smells like a bus of 80 years old lived in there for 20 years and the bed feels like they all slept in there at once. The breakfast was a joke but was included.

It is near a slightly run down area of town but the hotel itself is pretty nice. Our room had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, iron, and hair dryer. The hotel is remodeling. The lighting... More

My club held our dinner meeting at the restaurant. The room was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the waitresses were attentive. Presentation of our meals was beautiful and the taste was even better. I am sure to return to eat in the restaurant.

We were in a corner room which gave us a lot of space. It was nice to have a fridge and a microwave.
