We used Andy's when we visited in Feb. and had the car for a week - very nice, no problems, no "hidden surprises" in billing when we dropped it off. They were out of the mid-size that we had requested and upgraded us at no charge to a full size.

Botanic Park is a must-do, at least to us. Just a couple of hours to tour and an incredible photo-op.
