Overall desapointing experience because of the AC system. There is no central AC like you would expect to see in any other luxury hotel. Instead there is over a 150 slip AC unit with the noisy compressor attached outside. The noise is everywhere inside and outside. I spend the whole 3 days wearing earpluggs. Dear Management, do you have any... More

I stayed at this hotel for over a month and the staff made me feel so welcome. They said hello and asked me how things were going when I came in at night, small touches that make a difference when you're far from home. Occasionally they would leave flowers in my room, which again was just a small thing that... More

Room was fine, pool and bar area are amazing, local beer is very reasonably priced and as a Hilton Honors member I relieved a delicious "fresh from the oven" warm chocolate chip cookie on... More

The hotel is in a nice location in the middle of the city, the food was excellent, and the staff was very friendly and always ready to help. The swimming pool in the outside bar or one of the best parts of my experience at the hotel.
