First night was spent in a room with a connecting door to next room. The door magnifies all sound from that room. The other room was occupied by a couple of men and they were loud!

The room was terrible. Dust everywhere I have a child with asthma and this was not good. The staff was very friendly and upon checkout I did tell the receptionist and she was very apologetic I was very surprised at the quality of the room

I stay at this hotel when I travel for work. Good location, close to a lot of things, friendly staff, comfortable beds and great pillows. Breakfast is good and plenty of choice. The coffee is always hot! Internet was a little slow at times but not a big deal.

Hotel was very clean. Staff was friendly. Shuttle service was very convenient. It was easy to arrange and I not only needed a trip to the airport but a trip back after dropping off a friend. Hotel has hot chocolate available for its guests as well as coffee which is nice for kids.
