My partner and I and another couple are staying there 2 weeks in October. The reviews have been so-so, but I trust that Jorge the GM will make sure our stay is memorable given his responses here. As we will be there for quite some time, I will be able to give an objective review afterwards.

Later another girl (think she was a trainee) did the check-in and was very nice! The next day we left at 10 am and hung the "please clean room" sign out. When we came back at... More

Nice hotel though I got one of the smaller rooms facing the busy intersection. It can get loud if you leave the door open. The room was equipped appropriately...TV though I didn't use it and a see through shower..always an interesting addition. Over-all very clean with friendly and helpful staff. Chosen because of the proximity to all the action spots... More
