Wow! Spacious clean friendly right downtown this place really is great. Marvelous features- kitchenette, high end soaps and conditioners, large tall hot shower, heated towel rack, fresh milk on check in for our daughter, wine glasses...I could go on and on. Really overdelivers for the price. Thank you!
