Good
Pros: This was a relaxing and restful hotel to be at given the low occupancy at the time. Room was clean and well stocked. Good city view comfy bed.
Cons: No dine in restaurant available but that was due to the city mandate to the restricting of indoor dining. The bed while having good firm mattress it needs better pillows.

Disappointing
Pros: Room
Cons: Check-in took 30 minutes. The bar required ordering at the bar, which was no issue. I waited in line 30 minutes and bar tenders served all newcomers at bar instead of us in line. I will never stay here again.
