This is a beautiful hotel with a great location however the price we paid did not reflect what we expected to receive. We stayed on 9/12-9/14/08 and were stuck in a corner room. We had a lovely view of the parking lot that they suggest you park in. The cost is $12/day for hotel guests. We managed to only have to pay for 1 day and parked on the street the last night. The restaurant was good however the service was slow. There were less than 10 people dining at the same time as us, and it still took forever to get our food! This is not a crack on the waitress--she was fine; I think the kitchen took too long. We had a queen bed, and the overall size of the room was fine, however the bathroom was extremely small! It was barely bigger than a bathroom you would have on a cruise! It's right across the street from Marion Park and there is a farmer's market every Saturday--great for a cheap breakfast! We paid $150/night, and I think for what we got, $120 would have been more appropriate.
