I was enamored by the art deco decor, especially in the bedrooms. Every employee greeted us with a smile and "hello." Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious, and we had a fantastic time at the...

Prefer rooms overlooking the courtyard. I did ask to have a room change which was immediately accommodated. They were clean, spacious and updated. Northside of building was dark and overlooked a parking lot. Pillows were not comfortable - lumpy.
