Good: The service was outstanding! Helpful, friendly staff, and once we settled into our room, we were offered a complimentary juice, softdrink, or barista coffee via room service. Location is fantastic as the park and walk to botanical gardens was easily accessible. Free parking is also a bonus for us as we paid up to $40 at other city hotels. The best aspect of our stay was the staff – all seem happy and obviously enjoy working at The George.
