          Everything was superb at this hotel, the furniture, the cleanliness, the interiors and the overall ambiance once you step inside the building. It is also perfectly located within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and even residential areas.

          Clogged tub drain for the duration of our stay (after notifying management twice) and lack of coffee maker in the suites made the stay less than average. We did not feel we received adequate value for what we paid.
