Beautiful, delicious breakfast, wonderful service, and very comfortable room. Would have been perfect, but my cold shower put a damper on the stay. It was only a 25 minute drive from the airport, and the hotel arranged transportation for me the next day.

The hotel is located in a nice area surrounded by shops and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable however it was very loud to the point we could hear people in the hallways and even hear people talking in other rooms. The hot water takes forever to get barely warm. I wasn't impressed with this hotel.

The hotel was nice, comfortable but LOUD. Our room (123) was right by the main entrance and front driveway so a lot of street noise, constant front door sliding open and closed and loud hallway doors.
