I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed a concert during that time. From the beginning, the staff was friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The room was spacious and spotless. The location was perfect for shopping, dining, nightlife. I would definitely highly recommend this hotel and will be staying here again.
