We had a reservation about two weeks ago. The room was ok, but the service was terrible. We were charged a lot as of "deep cleaning fee", and the hotel did NOT inform us at all until we found it on our credit card bill. They said at the beginning that it would be fine for us to have a...

While we appreciate all client feedback, your deep cleaning fee was applied to your bill as the suite was not returned in good condition upon your departure. As it states on our registration form, which was signed by yourself upon check in, “I understand that I must return full possession of suite in good condition and will be liable for...

I had a large bedroom, which is fine and dandy but not all that necessary. What was way better was the large living/dining area and fully equipped galley kitchen with island and stools. Washer and dryer, comfy couch, plenty of chairs, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and easy places to work or relax. Location is only a block or so from...

Location is perfect for business. My room had a bedroom, a living room with a fully equipped kitchenette. Great areas and nicely decorated. The cleaning service is very basic.

Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced during your stay. As we have mentioned during your stay, we were fully committed as we are currently in our peak season. This limits the property greatly on suite transfer requests.
