Had to change rooms due to uncomfortable beds but they handled it very well. The staff was very helpful and breakfast... More

I stayed at the hotel on business the first part of the trip and continued my stay the weekend for pleasure. I was very impressed with the staff and the accommodations. The staff was so friendly and helpful. I stayed on the 11th floor and the room was very spacious and had everything I needed. I highly recommend the hotel.
