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.
Small room and no facilities at a price that is equal to Sheraton and Hilton level hotels
The hotel location is excellent. It was within a short walking distance to many of the area attractions. Having a very nice breakfast in the hotel was a delightful way to start the mornings. The breakfast room reminded me of a hotel in Rome, Italy.
It would be nice to have a mirror over the desk in the bedroom so one could be dressing, applying makeup, etc while the bathroom is being used.
The hotel was located in a great location. My boyfriend and I liked the fact that we were able to walk to most of the famous sites around town and we both enjoyed the friendly staff.
I checked the website before booking the hotel and I was shown a larger room. I was disappointed with the size of the room and felt like I was given false information and paid alot for a very small room.
