4 of us stayed here for 2 nights last week. The front desk staff was amazingly helpful, giving us a terrific restaurant name, and directions to various places. Rooms were nicely decorated and very clean with comfortable beds. One room was on the inner courtyard side and was very quiet. Friends whose room overlooked the street had a nice view but said it was a little noisy. Terrific location, close to everything. Only suggestions would be to install a towel rack next to the sink, and put a soap dish in the shower that will actually hold the bar of soap. And wi-fi access in the rooms would be a help. The lobby is beautiful but not much fun to sit around in trying to get email, etc. Breakfast buffet was substantial and of high quality.A nice touch was a bag of amaretti cookies as a gift in our room. The roof top lounge is a great place to hang out in nice weather.
