"Tina (the front desk manager) made our stay fantastic!"

"We were thrilled with the location of this hotel, walking distance to the river. The best thing about our visit was the Front Desk Manager - Tina - she was the kindest person we encountered on our week long stays in hotels. Thank you Tina for making our stay fantastic!"
