Fresh flowers in the lobbies were a nice touch. The breakfast was well presented, and the staff kept things replenished. The lobby was always clean. The business center was nice to have... More

This hotel has positive attributes and it's reasonable to accept that some guests might provide positive feedback. Our experience was mixed. Our (smallish) room and the hallways are clean and attractively decorated. The staff was friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay pleasant.

Overall experience was great from check-in to check-out. Only issue was we had only one towel but the housekeeping lady was kind enough to bring us additional ones before check-out. Majority of the night our neighbors in the next room seemed to be night owls and their door kept slamming shut. Would've been nice to actually sleep for the price... More

What a beautiful hotel with everything you could possibly want in a top quality hotel. I was accompanied by my wife on this trip (although it was business) and she felt truly pampered with all of the nice touches in the room. Great value. I will stay here again if they have an opening.

The staff was helpful and friendly. Perfect location, so close to everything!! I would go back in a heart beat! The room I got was off a gated private alley so there was no street noise. In the lobby they have booklets of all the fun things to do in the area.
