The Good
The majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive and focused on the rooms, the staff, the location and the on-site restaurant.

Although a few guests felt that some rooms were quite small, many thought the rooms were clean, well-maintained and up-to-date. Some mentioned that the beds were comfortable. A few guests felt that the certain rooms afforded a beautiful mountain or lake view, although there was some mixed opinion on this (see below for details).

The staff were complimented by many guests for providing friendly, helpful service.

The downtown location was a highlight for many guests. Guests felt there was ample parking next to the hotel and also appreciated being able to walk to restaurants and shops.

Some guests enjoyed the on-site restaurant and noted that the breakfast was particularly good.

The Bad
Although the majority of reviews used for this analysis were positive, some negative points focused on the view from some rooms.

Some guests who stayed in rooms facing the courtyard area were disappointed with the view, noting that there is lake and mountain view rooms available in the hotel but their room only afforded a view of a brick wall, mural and smoking area. These comments were often made by guests who stayed on the first floor and it was a common suggestion to pay more for an upgraded room on a higher level.
