          We had a great time at the General Palmer. Service was excellent and the location was perfect. Went on the train and all we had to do was walk around the corner. Loved the old elevator and the history of the hotel.

          Considering staying at the GP in May, but not too crazy about the cancel policy. Got aging parents and may have to cancel my whole trip should something bad come our way. Finding free cancel policies at most others in your area up until a few days before. Can you do any better than 70%? Pat
