Fue excelente! Sólo quisiera agregar que el personal de atención al público podría hablar otros idiomas, eso mejoraría mucho el servicio! Gracias por todo!

We stayed for 3 days in a private room, was one of the best stays I have ever had. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Guests were very friendly as well.

Where next?

Denver or Chicago by train: take the California Zephyr from Emeryville through the Rockies. It's a long trip but definitely worth it!
