Great Staff and Location
Staff is great: hard-working, pleasant, competent. Discounted parking was great. Nice, comfortable lobby. Great location. Good gelato next door would be more than enough, but there are many cafes, restaurants and historical sites.
Rooms are dated. Building is actually kind of cool, and it seems churlish to criticize an antique building as being dated. Still, some capital improvements, if possible, would be nice. However, I don't know how the Best Western franchise works in this regard. At the right price, the staff, location and area more than make up for the above,
Location, Staff, Lounge, Room, Breakfast.
