    Retired couple traveling on vacation. Delightful room, very comfortable and quiet, even though we were across from elevator. Front desk staff recommended a great restaurant within walking distance. Hotel's breakfast was the best we've ever seen with made to order omelette and fresh pastry.

    No there isn't parking at the hotel proper. There is a nice parking garage directly across the street that is free on weekends, and you can park on the street along the hotel.
