The room had a partial view of the adjacent airport, which made for some awesome views when airplanes would takeoff! The room itself was easily one of the best I've ever stayed... More

easy check in. comfortable, clean rooms. good beds, quiet. helpful staff. breakfasts were bountiful. Slight disappointment at the pool ambience. it would be hard to change as it is surrounded by walls on all sides, but I was hoping for a bit more tropical feel and poolside service.

The hotel is just lovely. Not often do you find this quality at a Mall hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the location is perfect being adjacent to Baystreet and the International Mall. I will stay again.
