the concierge lounge was done very tastefully and the service there was great. Elaine was always there to make your visit comfortable and kept the breakfast buffet full and fresh. She was very pleasant and made the stay great.

The stay was good overall. The hotel staff was friendly, the location was great, and the lobby / pool area were nice. The cleanliness of the room left some to be desired - hair on bed - dry soap on shower curtain - etc. I would repeat staying at this hotel.

The ice machine on our floor was perpetually out of ice (2nd Floor) On a positive note the hotel was quiet while we were there, we... More
