Excellent place to stay particularly if you have pets. The staff is very helpful and friendly. I would go out of my way to stay at this hotel when traveling. There is a field adjacent to hotel to exercise your dog.

Nice facility--everything clean and working. Friendly staff. Airport transfer went smoothly. The only problem was that the hotel missed my wake up call! Fortunately I had a backup alarm and didn't miss my early morning flight

This place looks quite grand as you enter but its rooms are not so grand as its magnificent lobby suggests - the rooms are pleasantly standard fare. There is remodeling underway that will likely bring the rooms up to the same standard as its very impressive lobby. The service is much more than standard - it's warm and gracious -...

Might as well sleep under the nearby highway underpass as the noise level from the very nearby highway makes it impossible to sleep. Upon entering the room I had a sense of a foul odor, though it dulled, that is until you re entered the room. As a parting shot the toilet failed before we departed. Not a pleasant stay.
