    Really enjoyable stay, as always. Hotel was luxe, had terrific location and staff. Everything was just perfect as expected, yet the bathroom was old. Easy check in and late check out. It was located 20 minutes walk from the downtown. I loved that bus station wacker & columbus was easily accessible, it was right at the property.

    Views were very unpleasant.
