Great experience except for the parking
It's a great hotel in an amazing place, close to everything. The only thing, the hotel don't have parking , they use a Wilson's parking so they should have a better rate for guests .

Exceptional 10.0
Handy location with excellent service. No parking available at the hotel, but alternative arrangements were fine and the hotel facilities, combined with the atmosphere and service more than made up for this. Family friendly venue that was welcoming and well resourced.
