We love your website and we really appreciated the way you approached us and our work. [Contributing Writer Constance] Washburn is a very kind person; we enjoyed the fact that she
was interested in learning about all the details, especially the green ones, about our hotel, as well as the fact that she gave us valuable feedback through her experience. We have to admit that this is one of the most analytical articles written about us and we would like to thank you for this.
