Nice stay
Always enjoy staying here. I arrived early from a long 14 hour flight and my room wasn’t ready. Princess the receptionist took the extra mile to upgrade my room so that I didn’t have to wait couple oh hours in the lobby. Many thanks.

Great service
The staff was very very helpful. I arrived early due to change in travel plans with my two 6and nine year old daughters who were very tired from the long trip. The staff found us a room right away. The girls really enjoyed their stay and the pool was great to spend time there.
Haisam, us1 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
The room and local hallway stunk of bug spray; good to think that the hotel was making sure that no little critters would bother us but the odor of this spray was over powering; at first my wife insisted on a different room; the staff was very helpful, helped us move to a room that stunk less. But that room was much older, was not updated and not nearly as good a room. So my wife asked to move back to the first room, which we were able to do. She liked that room much better and got used to the powerful bug spray smell. Staff very helpful, a pleasant visit.

Poor 2.0
Was not at all happy about our stay. Infact we have utilized only one day and had let go of two nights even though we have paid for 3 night. Horrible service was given a dirty handycapped room. If you can do anything about it i will truly appreciate it.

Great location - hotel dated - service subpar.
The location is so convenient to the metro and nearby restaurants. The hotel staff was friendly, but careless and unfortunate errors were made. My room key stopped working on 3 separate occasions, due to programming the card incorrectly. I was also billed incorrectly for the hotel tax. I have no dispute for the tax itself, but find it disappointing that I was billed incorrectly and had to use much time to settle a bill that should have beeen paid days before.
