The hotel was clean and the women at the desk were very friendly and helpful. However, even though the website advertises multilingual services, that didn't seem to be the case at all. When we inquired about dinner the restaurant staff could not be located. They were supposed to be open at 7:00 pm and when we went to check at... More

Spent the weekend end here about two weeks ago and I must say was very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was and how great the service was. The rooms were huge and the bathrooms very modern. The front desk personnel were especially kind and helpful even bringing coffee to our room on the date of our departure. So nice!... More
