8/10 Very good

Overall I enjoyed my stay and would come back. I had a slight issue when I checked in because the room just seemed a bit used up and spit out if you know what I mean. Stains And discoloration on the bathroom counters, stains of the sofa, carpet definitely needed to be replaced, fingerprints all over the windows. Random dirty fingerprints all over the walls, a huge crack in the makeup mirror. Etc..I wouldn’t have felt comfortable sleeping in there so I went down and asked to move to a different room and the guy at the front desk was very understanding and allowed me to change rooms. It meant a lot that he didn’t give me attitude and was very nice about it. The restaurant is very nice and so is the bar. The parking is also very convenient, I like how the elevator takes you right into the lobby or your floor. I’d definitely stay here again.

Room makes a great first impression, dazzling! Staff is super! Bathroom is walled with frosted glass, so lighting would have benefited from night vision goggles when shaving! No exhaust fan.No light blocking from curtains as morning sun hits the bed. Nice tea pot, bottled water, etc. No thermostat. Great bedding! A mixed bag adding up to pretty nice!
