    Gave us a terribly tiny room. Made us wait 2 hrs before giving us a room. Didn't explain the voucher thing for parking which cost us $72 instead of the announced $25. Rooms are really small and rather uncomfortable.More

    Hi - its on a small urban urban street and there is NO street parking. There is parking buildings in the area and from memory they have the info on the hotel website. Its a cute hotel and great value for money.
