Our room was excellent as were all the facilities we experienced. Food tick, location tick, service tick, overall experience tick. The only downside was being told we had to pay for tap water at the dinner we attended.

Location is perfect! Just next to a super shopping center! The rooms are a little on the old/tired side, but clean. The view is stunning from the top floor rooms. Amazing breakfast and excellent service. Super friendly employees! Definately recommend staying here!
