Meredith Dobler

08 February 2009 Meredith would recommend this property

Liked: There was a place to keep luggage before we checked in so we didn't have to carry our bags around with us in the city. There were also lockers available to rent for after we checked out so we again would not have to have our bags with us while we explored the city.

Disliked: Meredith left no negative feedback.
