I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last 3 years. But it has been about 9 months since the last time. I have written a few reviews about this hotel which all seem to have disappeared, but long story short I was never a fan. The building was old, staff was rude and the turnover rate was so high that you always had to deal with people that are "in training".
I was very surprised to walk in last week and recognize both people working behind the desk. Service was efficient and very friendly. Way above average.
Rooms have been remodeled and updated. It was a very nice stay, and I am looking forward to returning soon.
