First of all,there was free wifi connection with public computer in the lobby available for free internet access.Breakfast was delicious,room was awesome except Ac but there was fresh air,specially south side.However,Rooms include a coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator ,also very clean.Really enjoyed their daily breakfast and free newspaper with comfortable beds.I am waiting for next trip,hope will get their better services.Keep it up.

Room Tip: i spent 3 nights ,overall ,its okay ,just need to provide more better services.
