My husband and I booked a stay here last weekend (July 18). I guess the prices are up because of the PanAm Games. But there's no way our room was worth $279. A king bed with a whirlpool bath. Big deal. Housekeeping was at the door at 0830 in the morning, then again at 0930. Whats the rush????

A great hotel in a great location. Close to everything. Very clean-will definitely recommend & stay again! We opted for the suite with kitchenette-worth the extra $ as this was a 2nd rm, Would be an economical choice for a family if you wanted to eat in. Full size fridge. The breakfast her (included in price) had something for everyone-even... More
