The Kensington Hotel
My new best hotel
Excellent hotel. Very attentive and friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere. Had to switch to this hotel when our usual hotel was unable to accommodate extended trip. Very glad they couldn't. I would have no hesitation in going back to this hotel. Life is too short to stay in average hotels or read long reviews.

Amazing anniversary stay
Great stay for our anniversary. We really appreciated the service. The hotel kindly left a wonderful note and a rose petal heart decoration on our bed. Always attentive to our needs. Magical!
