          Just finished a convention at the Desmond. I found the staff very attentive and the enclosed courtyard very enjoyable. The food at the banquet was better than average and quickly served warm. Very positive experience.

          Stayed overnight in a very nice room overlooking the courtyard .a very nice touch for a North American hotel.loads of parking just off the freeway. Nicely appointed on the inside,you can walk around in an enclosed covered courtyard and enjoy the ambiance. Would definitely return.
