This hotel had the most comfortable bed and linens of any hotel I've stayed in. The staff were lovely and very helpful.

The hotel is just in the historical part of the city and it is a perfect location to reach walking the whole downtown and to enjoy a cozy atmosphere. Rooms are quite big and looks pretty new.
