This is an older hotel, but our room was large and bright and spotlessly clean. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We only stayed two nights but I would definitely stay again.
The location in St Philips Plaza is great. The plaza is picturesque with some nice shops and a couple of good restaurants/cafes, but the icing on the cake is the farmers market on Sunday. There are lots of stalls selling amazing produce, such as fresh bread, French pastries, organic fruit and veg and much, much more.
The supermarket over the road - Trader Joe's - is very good, selling mostly organic produce. It's a little pricey, but worth it and there is a small Walmart quite nearby for any basics you might need.
A short drive up North Campbell Avenue is a very nice shopping Mall - I think it's called Encantada. They have some good shops, a very good supermarket, an Apple Store and we saw a couple of restaurants, but didn't eat there so not sure what they are like.
The stay was just a stopping off point on our travels, but it very much exceeded our expectations and we would love to return.
