At first, we thought this hotel seemed more like a Sheraton than a Best Western, even as Plus category hotel. Front desk staff were very friendly, professional and efficient. The decor in the public areas and rooms was great, and we loved all the nice local-themed art throughout the hotel. We were worried at first that the liquor store on the property and the traffic would be issues, but they weren't at all. The bed was comfortable, and having an armoire in the room instead of closest was an excellent idea. The restaurant is an integral part of the hotel, and is equally well run, with friendly staff, good food and nice ambience with the large working gas fireplace. We have a standard request for a high floor room, far from elevator and not every hotel notices - this one did! less
