I stayed 2 nights in this large hotel and this was on August 2014.The location of the hotel is great. The hotel is under huge renovation but that did not stop us from enjoying the cool weather and variety of shops at the plaza.

Our room space was narrow and set up fewer furniture and bathroom accessories. Without hand tower too. The Tv also smaller. No mineral waters were giving. But my sister room...
