        • The location is great, the hotel is well located to shopping and staff is very friendly and helpful. The beds here are wonderful and martini bar is awesome.

          This place is not worth the money and the rooms are extremely small.

        • The location was great and valley parking was available for over $40 a day. The place was clean and price was also good. Staff were wonderfully helpful, room was excellent and piano player were entertaining.

          Luxury hotels should do better, the choices for breakfast are very limited and on a hot day a pool would have been nice.
