    The closed inner atriums around which the rooms are located reminded me of some of the grander versions found in Las Vegas! We stayed one night for a conference. The staff were very friendly. Our room (two queen beds) was spacious, well maintained and clean....More

    Location was great mall was close to shop The food was great but way to much for each person portions could have been cut in half a lot of wasted food. Conference rooms were excellent for the meeting.

    Always enjoy a trip back in history with the spring NYMDA trip, hope we don't change venues. The service and food at our Tuesday night meeting was a real treat and no one should visit without trying the bread pudding.

    Great experience in the two floor suite for a date night with my wife. Room service platters were fun and romantic. Dinner was fantastic. Breakfast in the restaurant was a bit disappointing. Nothing terrible, but certainly not on par with the rest of the experience....More

    Nice hotel for business conferences. Centrally located. Clean and friendly staff for the most part. I did run into one lady who was a little snippy. Overall, I enjoy coming to this cute hotel for my conferences and business trips.
