The location is very central making it easy to get around. Unfortunately I had to leave before the 7am breakfast.
Free freshly baked cookies and free room snacks. Zen garden and modern decor. Comfy bed and pillows.
The staff is amazing! They were extremely friendly and accommodating. The location is superb! The breakfast offers a nice variety.
The bedding was not clean(the decorative that is on top). The rooms are in need of a little TLC with overall maintenance of painting etc.
Everything! Breakfast was very good, and our 2 bedroom queen suite was clean, spacious and comfortable. The complimentary cookies and apples at reception were also a bonus. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Hotel decor was stylish.
