wonderful
Pros: everything
Cons: should mark "vegan" on menu for items that don't contain dairy products, a common issue for older people who develop lactose intolerance. Others concerned about vegan issues would appreciate that too

Pros: Great location, room was nicely quiet, very comfortable furnishings, appreciated the recycling bin and ability to open windows very much.
Cons: The only issue was that we reserved 2 beds through Bookings but they initially put us in a room with a single King. That was easily remedied though with a quick call to the desk and they made the shift to the right room super easy.
