You are a five minute drive from everywhere. Great staff who go out of their way to do better than they need to. Microwave and a fridge! That was unexpected. They even... More

Room had a very unpleasant odor. The mattresses were so hard as were the pillows that I could not sleep. I would expect a room that cost $154/night to be in better shape than this one was.
