The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Lovely to stay here . I will keep coming back . The only improvement would be a king size bed in the manhatten twin room as I was sharing with my daughter in the queen.

Very comfy bed. Stayed in a 2 bedroom in West Wing Room 653. Relaxing with gorgeous views. Just found that the bathroom was a little tiny but it serves the purpose. Everything you need downstairs. Staff extremely helpful.
