              • Family with children

                Fantastic apartment with fully equipped kitchen. Great location.

                Garrage and elevators are .... let's say .... outdated.

              • Couple

                The free breakfast was excellent, and the location was also great. BossArts spa is very nice as well.

                The parking garage was under construction, it was very confusing and inconvenient to move our car for parking off site. The bed in our room was the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept on, our backs are very sore. Also the pool was shallow and the hot tub was full of children.
