Perfect way to start the New Year!

5 on January 03, 2011

My Husband and I arrived for the MSU Gator Bowl Game the weekend of New Years. From the very start, the historic neighborhood was perfect for evening and morning walks along the river while the location was perfect for downtown celebrations! Dan was so sweet and drove us to and from the game so that we didn't have the hassel of dealing with traffic or a taxi! Their breakfasts were very inventive and yummy! Everything was very clean and they provided top of the line bathing shampoos and such! I can not rave about it enough! Perfect!
