        • Location was very nice and this hotel was a perfect choice. Great little breakfast included in lobby, the staff were incredibly friendly and made certain that any need we had was met, my room was very clean and comfortable and had everything I needed.

          Wifi quality was poor.

        • The location is great, the nearby public parking is free from 8pm to 9am and pillows are nice and high quality. Style is modern and fresh, service is friendly, the rooms are very nicely designed and comfortable.

          Loud music and people on the street, low water pressure in shower.
