This hotel is just an average hotel. The outside appearance is fine, looks good. The lobby is nicely updated and very attractive. Then you get to your room, and they are dated. Don't get me wrong, everything worked, just older. The remote control for the TV for example didn't work half the time, the mattress was very stiff, giving me... More
