Have stayed at this property a few times now and have also stayed at the Somerset property on Gordon. This is the better place to stay. GREAT front desk staff - they were friendly, courteous and helpful. The apartment I had was very comfy (the bed in particular!), clean, and safe apartment.

After a 15 hour flight from California, we stayed three nights. The apartment had more than enough room for the two of us with an exceptionally comfortable bed, which was just what we needed. Another plus is the great location with easy walking to many places in the Central Business District, or access to the free tram right near the... More
