Dear Renee G "A delightful hotel" The complimentary breakfast is wonderful with hot food and a variety of options" "This was a wonderful experience, I would definitely recommend it" Thanks for the 5 Star PERFECT review you shared on TripAdvisor, and thanks for staying with us as well. I am glad you had such a fantastic time and enjoyed staying with us, this is great news. While I agree with you comments about the hotel and our great location, I honestly don't share the same concern in regard to parking in front of the hotel. Guests are fine to park, check in and check out, afterall it is a 30 minute loading zone. If you are referring to overnight parking on the street, I would agree. That's why we offer our guests what I think is the best garage parking deal in the city, $17 per night with unlimited in/out privileges. Awesome, right? Anyway, thanks again for the great review and for sharing your "Wonderful experience" with the the world! See you soon! JM
