10/10 Exceptional

Lovely hotel in great condition(recent refresh?) and in a good location for walking to stuff, but our bathroom was very squishy. I’m also not sure why they say parking will be $20/night when it was from full, there’s no real way to monitor who’s parking where and it’s not secure, only to then waive the fee on checkout. Perhaps just make it free parking. Overall a great hotel and would stay again.
