        • The location is excellent, overall the hotel is nice and clean, the staff is unbelievably friendly and accommodating. Room is big and comfortable, food is great at Breakfast Dinner.

          Restaurant daily grill was overpriced for its quality and elevator service was adequate and we never had to wait for long. The bed was the most uncomfortable i've ever slept in.
