The rooms are clean and the extra alcove with a twin is a bonus if traveling with kids. The only window looks out into a cement patio with a small cement patio - so no fresh air flow. Positive is that rooms do not connect directly to another room so it is very quiet.
The rooms are clean and very well kept. The bedding was nice but the towels were like see thru sandpaper - an investment in towels would go a VERY long way. The water in shower is lukewarm - never had a hot shower.
The breakfast bar is very, very basic - fresh fruit, yogurt and fresh danish from a local baker would be a HUGE improvement over pre-packaged danish that is weeks old. Not a huge deal but for $250 a night one should expect towels and higher quality items.
Staff is very nice. No elevator - so not good for elderly.
