We visit FOCO a few times a year. Sometimes for fun, sometimes to care take. This hotel is our go to. The staff are courteous, the bar a lot of fun, Val is awesome! There also is MUGS next door for a quick cup of coffee and more. The Whiskey Bar across the street is also fun. The neighborhood also has so much within walking distance. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This was a great find!
