    "Outstanding Service"

    This hotel has a great location - just a short walk to the Octogan. But what really impressed us was the service we received. We arrived to check in early, expecting to not be able to access our room, however the receptionist juggled rooms so that we were able to check in completely! In addition when we checked out it was so easy - and we were able to leave our car, until later that afternoon in hotel parking, and the concierge ensured that our bags were in there ready and waiting.
