4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location was perfect for me; a short walk to the boardwalk and to museums. The staff was excellent, stellar--both in the lobby and in the restaurant. In my opinion, the rooms need to be updated and sound-proofed. The bed was extremely comfortable, though. Over all, a great place to stay!
