We have stayed at this hotel four times in the past eight years during winterlude. We're coming from eastern New York. The hotel is perfectly located. You can walk to several restaurants, all the activities, parliament, churches, museums. The best is the proximity to the canal. Unfortunately this year it was too warm to skate on the canal, we tried but had to give up and then it was closed the rest of the weekend. We've never been here when the staff were not super helpful. We normally come with our two daughters but this year neither could come, but my husband and I still came and had a wonderful time. We ran out of time, we still had things we want to do, next trip!
